|Canto 3: The Status Quo||Chapter 10: Divisions of the Creation|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 3.10.30
ataḥ paraḿ pravakṣyāmi
vaḿśān manvantarāṇi ca
evaḿ rajaḥ-plutaḥ sraṣṭā
kalpādiṣv ātmabhūr hariḥ
ataḥ — here; param — after; pravakṣyāmi — I shall explain; vaḿśān — descendants; manvantarāṇi — different advents of Manus; ca — and; evam — thus; rajaḥ-plutaḥ — infused with the mode of passion; sraṣṭā — the creator; kalpa-ādiṣu — in different millenniums; ātma-bhūḥ — self-advent; hariḥ — the Personality of Godhead; sṛjati — creates; amogha — unfailing; sańkalpaḥ — determination; ātmā eva — He Himself; ātmānam — Himself; ātmanā — by His own energy.
Now I shall describe the descendants of the Manus. The creator, Brahmā, as the incarnation of the passion mode of the Personality of Godhead, creates the universal affairs with unfailing desires in every millennium by the force of the Lord's energy.
The cosmic manifestation is an expansion of one of the many energies of the Supreme Personality of Godhead; the creator and the created are both emanations of the same Supreme Truth, as stated in the beginning of the Bhāgavatam: janmādy asya yataḥ [SB 1.1.1].
Thus end the Bhaktivedanta purports of the Third Canto, Tenth Chapter, of the Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, entitled "Divisions of the Creation."
