Canto 6: Prescribed Duties for MankindChapter 8: The Nārāyaṇa-kavaca Shield

Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 6.8.31

yathā hi bhagavān eva

vastutaḥ sad asac ca yat

satyenānena naḥ sarve

yāntu nāśam upadravāḥ


yathā — just as; hi — indeed; bhagavān — the Supreme Personality of Godhead; eva — undoubtedly; vastutaḥ — at the ultimate issue; sat — manifested; asat — unmanifested; ca — and; yat — whatever; satyena — by the truth; anena — this; naḥ — our; sarve — all; yāntu — let them go; nāśamto annihilation; upadravāḥ — disturbances.


The subtle and gross cosmic manifestation is material, but nevertheless it is nondifferent from the Supreme Personality of Godhead because He is ultimately the cause of all causes. Cause and effect are factually one because the cause is present in the effect. Therefore the Absolute Truth, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, can destroy all our dangers by any of His potent parts.
