While Maha-Visnu sleeps within the Causal Ocean, innumerable universes are generated along with His breathing. These universes are floating, and they are scattered all over the Causal Ocean. They stay only during the breathing period of Maha-Visnu. In each and every universal globe, the same Maha-Visnu enters again as Garbhodakasayi Visnu and lies there on the serpentlike Sesa incarnation. From His navel sprouts a lotus stem, and on the lotus, Brahma, the lord of the universe, is born. Brahma creates all forms of living beings of different shapes in terms of different desires within the universe.
dumnezeul tau roz te-adoarme intre vise aurii,
ti-a sters lacrimile cu o minciuna frumoasa si
visezi ca maine vei fi.
O jale dau, pentru o liniste.
Tinere print, de ce te-ai indoit
de un gand cenusiu? Stiai bine ca sufletul
se afla in afara de negru si alb.
Pentru o creanga subtire,
ca o intrebare de alun,
dau linistea stearsa a serii.
