iti tasam sva-saktinam
satinam asametya sah
nisamya gatim isvarah
Translation by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
The Rsi Maitreya said: The Lord thus heard about the suspension of the progressive creative functions of the universe due to the noncombination of His potencies, such as the mahat-tattva.
Purport by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
There is nothing wanting in the creation of the Lord; all the potencies are there in a dormant state. But unless they are combined by the will of the Lord, nothing can progress. The suspended progressive work of creation can only be revived by the direction of the Lord.
