namo ’nantaya brhate
namah krsnaya vedhase
King Bali said: Obeisances to the unlimited Lord, Ananta, the greatest of all beings. And obeisances to Lord Krsna, the creator of the universe, who appears as the impersonal Absolute and the Supersoul in order to disseminate the principles of sankhya and yoga.
Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti identifies the supreme Ananta named here as Lord Balarama, from whom expands the divine serpent Ananta Sesa. Impersonal Brahman is the source of the texts belonging to the sankhya philosophers, while the personal representation of the Lord known as Paramatma disseminates the textbooks of yoga.
