srjato me ksitir varbhih
plavyamana rasam gata
athatra kim anustheyam
yasyaham hrdayad asam
sa iso vidadhatu me
Translation by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
Brahma thought: While I have been engaged in the process of creation, the earth has been inundated by a deluge and has gone down into the depths of the ocean. What can we do who are engaged in this matter of creation? It is best to let the Almighty Lord direct us.
Purport by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
The devotees of the Lord, who are all confidential servitors, are sometimes perplexed in the discharge of their respective duties, but they are never discouraged. They have full faith in the Lord, and He paves the way for the smooth progress of the devotee’s duty.
