Canto 8: Withdrawal of the Cosmic CreationsChapter 17: The Supreme Lord Agrees to Become Aditi's Son

Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 8.17.26

namas te pṛśni-garbhāya

veda-garbhāya vedhase

tri-nābhāya tri-pṛṣṭhāya

śipi-viṣṭāya viṣṇave


namaḥ teI offer my respectful obeisances unto You; pṛśni-garbhāya — who formerly lived within the womb of Pṛśni (Aditi in her previous birth); veda-garbhāya — who always remain within Vedic knowledge; vedhase — who are full of knowledge; tri-nābhāya — within the stem growing from whose navel live all the three worlds; tri-pṛṣṭhāya — who are transcendental to the three worlds; śipi-viṣṭāya — who are within the cores of the hearts of all living entities; viṣṇave — unto the all-pervading Supreme Personality of Godhead.


I offer my respectful obeisances unto You, the all-pervading Lord Viṣṇu, who have entered the cores of the hearts of all living entities. All the three worlds reside within Your navel, yet You are above the three worlds. Formerly You appeared as the son of Pṛśni. To You, the supreme creator, who are understood only through Vedic knowledge, I offer my respectful obeisances.
