|Canto 3: The Status Quo||Chapter 16: The Two Doorkeepers of Vaikuṇṭha, Jaya and Vijaya, Cursed by the Sages|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 3.16.15
procuḥ prāñjalayo viprāḥ
te — those; yoga-māyayā — through His internal potency; ārabdha — had been revealed; pārameṣṭhya — of the Supreme Personality of Godhead; mahā-udayam — multiglories; procuḥ — spoke; prāñjalayaḥ — with folded hands; viprāḥ — the four brāhmaṇas; prahṛṣṭāḥ — extremely delighted; kṣubhita-tvacaḥ — hair standing on end.
The four brāhmaṇa sages were nevertheless extremely delighted to behold Him, and they experienced a thrill throughout their bodies. They then spoke as follows to the Lord, who had revealed the multiglories of the Supreme Personality through His internal potency, yogamāyā.
The sages were almost too puzzled to speak before the Supreme Personality of Godhead for the first time, and the hairs of their bodies stood erect due to their extreme joy. The highest opulence in the material world is called pārameṣṭhya, the opulence of Brahmā. But that material opulence of Brahmā, who lives on the topmost planet within this material world, cannot compare to the opulence of the Supreme Lord because the transcendental opulence in the spiritual world is caused by yogamāyā, whereas the opulence in the material world is caused by mahāmāyā.
