|Canto 12: The Age of Deterioration||Chapter 9: Mārkaṇḍeya Ṛṣi Sees the Illusory Potency of the Lord|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 12.9.33
tāvat sa bhagavān sākṣād
antardadha ṛṣeḥ sadyo
tāvat — just then; saḥ — He; bhagavān — the Personality of Godhead; sākṣāt — directly; yoga-adhīśaḥ — the supreme master of yoga; guhā-śayaḥ — who is hidden within the heart of all living beings; antardadhe — disappeared; ṛṣeḥ — in front of the sage; sadyaḥ — suddenly; yathā — in the same way as; īhā — the object of endeavor; anīśa — by an incompetent person; nirmitā — created.
At that moment the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who is the original master of all mysticism and who is hidden within everyone's heart, became invisible to the sage, just as the achievements of an incompetent person can suddenly vanish.
