।।14.4।। हे कौन्तेय समस्त योनियों में जितनी मूर्तियाँ (शरीर) उत्पन्न होती हैं? उन सबकी योनि अर्थात् गर्भ है महद्ब्रह्म और मैं बीज की स्थापना करने वाला पिता हूँ।।
Whatever forms that are generated into existence from the wombs of demigods, demons, human, animal, birds, reptile, fish, etc. all manifest from the great womb of inanimate existence within the brahman or spiritual substratum pervading all existence and is known as prakriti the material substratum pervading physical existence by dint of its modifications known as the three gunas of sattva or goodness, rajas or passion and tamas or nescience. These modifications manifest due to circumstances based on the individual karma of unlimited jivas or embodied beings who are embedded by the Supreme Lord with the animate aspect known as the atma or immortal soul. This is the cause of all created beings and thus Lord Krishna is thus the father of all. The primary reason for such diverse generating of jivas will be given next.
