|Canto 2: The Cosmic Manifestation||Chapter 8: Questions by King Parīkṣit|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 2.8.10
sa cāpi yatra puruṣo
saḥ — He; ca — also; api — as He is; yatra — where; puruṣaḥ — the Personality of Godhead; viśva — the material worlds; sthiti — maintenance; udbhava — creation; apyayaḥ — annihilation; muktvā — without being touched; ātma-māyām — own energy; māyā-īśaḥ — the Lord of all energies; śete — does lie on; sarva-guhā-śayaḥ — one who lies in everyone s heart.
Please also explain the Personality of Godhead, who lies in every heart as the Supersoul, and as the Lord of all energies, but is untouched by His external energy.
Undoubtedly the form of the Lord who was seen by Brahmā must be transcendental, otherwise how could He simply look upon the creative energy without being touched? It is understood also that the same puruṣa lies in the heart of every living entity. This also requires proper explanation.
