Chapter 10: The Opulence of the Absolute
yac capi sarva-bhutanam
bijam tad aham arjuna
na tad asti vina yat syan
maya bhutam caracaram
yat—whatever; ca—also; api—may be; sarva-bhūtānām—of all creations; bījam—the seed; tat—that; aham—I am; arjuna—O Arjuna; na—not; tat—that; asti—there is; vinā—without; yat—that; syāt—exists; mayā—by Me; bhūtam—created; carācaram—moving and unmoving.
Furthermore, O Arjuna, I am the generating seed of all existences. There is no being-moving or unmoving-that can exist without Me.
Everything has a cause, and that cause or seed of manifestation is Kṛṣṇa. Without Kṛṣṇa's energy, nothing can exist; therefore He is called omnipotent. Without His potency, neither the movable nor the unmovable can exist. Whatever existence is not founded on the energy of Kṛṣṇa is called māyā, that which is not.
