eṣa vairocane sākṣād
bhagavān viṣṇur avyayaḥ
kaśyapād aditer jāto
śrī-śukraḥ uvāca — Śukrācārya said; eṣaḥ — this (boy in the form of a dwarf); vairocane — O son of Virocana; sākṣāt — directly; bhagavān — the Supreme Personality of Godhead; viṣṇuḥ — Lord Viṣṇu; avyayaḥ — without deterioration; kaśyapāt — from His father, Kaśyapa; aditeḥ — in the womb of His mother, Aditi; jātaḥ — was born; devānām — of the demigods; kārya-sādhakaḥ — working in the interest.
Śukrācārya said: O son of Virocana, this brahmacārī in the form of a dwarf is directly the imperishable Supreme Personality of Godhead, Viṣṇu. Accepting Kaśyapa Muni as His father and Aditi as His mother, He has now appeared in order to fulfill the interests of the demigods.
