|Canto 3: The Status Quo||Chapter 10: Divisions of the Creation|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 3.10.18
ṣaḍ ime prākṛtāḥ sargā
vaikṛtān api me śṛṇu
ṣaṭ — six; ime — all these; prākṛtāḥ — of the material energy; sargāḥ — creations; vaikṛtān — secondary creations by Brahmā; api — also; me — from me; śṛṇu — just hear; rajaḥ-bhājaḥ — of the incarnation of the mode of passion (Brahmā); bhagavataḥ — of the greatly powerful; līlā — pastime; iyam — this; hari — the Supreme Personality of Godhead; medhasaḥ — of one who has such a brain.
All the above are natural creations by the external energy of the Lord. Now hear from me about the creations by Brahmā, who is an incarnation of the mode of passion and who, in the matter of creation, has a brain like that of the Personality of Godhead.
