|Canto 3: The Status Quo||Chapter 26: Fundamental Principles of Material Nature|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 3.26.25
yam anantaḿ pracakṣate
sahasra-śirasam — with a thousand heads; sākṣāt — directly; yam — whom; anantam — Ananta; pracakṣate — they all; sańkarṣaṇa-ākhyam — Sańkarṣaṇa by name; puruṣam — the Supreme Personality of Godhead; bhūta — the gross elements; indriya — the senses; manaḥ-mayam — consisting of the mind.
The threefold ahańkāra, the source of the gross elements, the senses and the mind, is identical with them because it is their cause. It is known by the name of Sańkarṣaṇa, who is directly Lord Ananta with a thousand heads.
