Brahma Vaivarta Purana
Chapter 20: Verse 21-30
Stealing the Calves
21.Gazing at this great wonder, Brahmä meditated again. O sage, now he saw that the three worlds were not different from Lord Kåñëa.
22.He thought: Where are the trees? Where are the mountains? Where are the continents? Where are the oceans? Where are the demigods? Where are the gandharvas? Where are the kings of sages? Where are the human beings?
23.Where am I? Where is the seed of the universe? Where is Svargaloka? Where are the cows? Bewildered by Lord Kåñëa's Yogamäyä potency, Brahmä saw that everything had become just like Lord Kåñëa's form.
24.Who was Kåñëa, the master of the universes? What were His potencies? Brahmä could not say. All he saw was Kåñëa.
25.To whom should I offer prayers? What should I do? Thinking this in his mind, Brahmä, the creator of the universe, began to chant mantras.
26.Folding his hands, he sat in a yoga posture. The hairs of his body stood erect. His eyes filled with tears as if he were very poor and dejected.
27.Practicing yoga, he carefully blocked the six naòis: iòa, suñumëa, medhya, piìgala, naliné, and dhruva.
28.Then he blocked the six cakras: muladhara, svadhiñöhana, manipura, anahata, viçuddha, and paramajïa.
29.Gradually bringing the life-air past the cakras, he placed it in the brahma-randhra.
30.Then he carried the life-air along the medhyä path and brought it to the lotus of the heart.
