सर्वभूतानि कौन्तेय प्रकृतिं यान्ति मामिकाम्।
कल्पक्षये पुनस्तानि कल्पादौ विसृजाम्यहम्।।9.7।।
।।9.7।।हे कुन्तीनन्दन कल्पोंका क्षय होनेपर सम्पूर्ण प्राणी मेरी प्रकृतिको प्राप्त होते हैं और कल्पोंके आदिमें मैं फिर उनकी रचना करता हूँ।
9.7 Kaunteya, O son of Kunti; sarva-bhutani, all the beings-all the beings which, like wind abiding in space, abide thus in Me during their period of existence; yanti, go back; kalpa-ksaye, at the end of a cycle, at the time of dissolution; mamikam prakrtim, to My Prakrti which consists of the three gunas (alities; see 7.13) and is (called My) lower Nature. Punah, again; aham, I; visrjami, project forth, create; tani, them, the beings, as before [As before: as in previous cycles of creation.]; kalpadau, at the beginning of a cycle, at the time of creation.
9.7 Sarva- etc. Nature : unmanifest form.
9.7 All the mobile and immobile entities enter into My Prakrti at the end of a cycle, namely at the end of Brahmas life in accordance with My will. This Prakrti, constituting My body, is designated by the term Tamas, as it cannot be differentiated into name and form. I again send forth the very same beings at the beginning of a cycle. Manu declares accordingly: This universe became Tamas ৷৷. by an act of will. He produced it out of His body (Manu, 1.5.8). The Srutis also declare thus: He whose body is Avyakta (Su. U., 7); The Avyakta merges into Aksara, the Aksara into Tamas (Ibid., 2); and also There was Tamas; the intelligence was concealed by Tamas (Tai. Br., 1.8.9).
