Srimad Bhagvata Mahapurana: Book 10: Chapter 14: Verses 1-6
Brahma extols the Lord
Brahma prayed : I offer my praises, 0 praiseworthy Lord, to You, the Son of a cowherd, with tender feet, and clad in a costume bright as lightning, endowed with a personality dark as a (rainy) cloud, a face resplendent with ear-rings made of Gunja seeds and a crest of peacock feathers, and with a garland of sylvan flowers and graced with a morsel of food, a cane, a horn, a flute and other emblems (borne in Your hands). Even I, Brahma, cannot truly comprehend with a mind turned inward the glory, 0 Lord, even of this personality (of Yours, revealed before us)-the instrument of Your grace on me, shaped according to the will of Your devotees and certainly not a product of gross elements-much less directly of Yourself, consisting (as You do) of Truth, Bliss and Consciousness. 0 invincible Lord, You stand generally conquered in (all) the three worlds even by them who spend their time solely in venerating with their body, speech and mind Your stories spontaneously told by saints (visiting their house) and fallen on their ears (without any effort on their part), remaining at their own abode and totally giving up (all) effort at (attaining) spiritual enlightenment.
