Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.40.11
sattvaḿ rajas tama iti
bhavataḥ prakṛter guṇāḥ
teṣu hi prākṛtāḥ protā
sattvam — goodness; rajaḥ — passion; tamaḥ — ignorance; iti — thus known; bhavataḥ — Your; prakṛteḥ — of the material nature; guṇāḥ — the qualities; teṣu — to them; hi — certainly; prākṛtāḥ — the conditioned living entities; protāḥ — woven; ā-brahma — up to Lord Brahmā; sthāvara-ādayaḥ — starting with the nonmoving creatures.
Goodness, passion and ignorance, the qualities of Your material nature, entangle all conditioned living beings, from Brahmā down to the nonmoving creatures.
