Shrimad Bhagavad Gita As It Is -Shri Shrimad A.C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

The Opulence of the Absolute
Chapter 10: Verse-39

yac cäpi sarva-bhütänäm bijam tad aham arjuna
na tad asti vinä yat syän mayä bhütam caräcaram[1]


Furthermore, O Arjuna, I am the generating seed of all existences. There is no being—moving or nonmoving—that can exist without Me.


Everything has a cause, and that cause or seed of manifestation is Krsna. Without Krsna’s energy, nothing can exist; therefore He is called omnipotent. Without His potency, neither the movable nor the immovable can exist. Whatever existence is not founded on the energy of krsna is called mäyä,“that which is not.”



  1. yat=whatever; ca=also; api=may be; sarva-bhütänäm=of all creations;
    bijam=seed; tat=that; aham=I am; arjuna=O Arjuna; na=not; tat=that; asti=there is; vinä=without; yat=which; syät=exists; mayä=Me;
    bhütam=created being; cara-acaram=moving and nonmoving.
