|Canto 3: The Status Quo||Chapter 10: Divisions of the Creation|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 3.10.27
vaikṛtās traya evaite
deva-sargaś ca sattama
vaikārikas tu yaḥ proktaḥ
vaikṛtāḥ — creations of Brahmā; trayaḥ — three kinds; eva — certainly; ete — all these; deva-sargaḥ — appearance of the demigods; ca — also; sattama — O good Vidura; vaikārikaḥ — creation of demigods by nature; tu — but; yaḥ — which; proktaḥ — described before; kaumāraḥ — the four Kumāras; tu — but; ubhaya-ātmakaḥ — both ways (namely vaikṛta and prākṛta).
O good Vidura, these last three creations and the creation of demigods (the tenth creation) are vaikṛta creations, which are different from the previously described prākṛta (natural) creations. The appearance of the Kumāras is both.
