1. 1

    मैत्रेय उवाच चरमः सद्विशेषाणामनेकोऽसंयुतः सदा । परमाणुः स विज्ञेयो नृणामैक्यभ्रमो यतः ।। ३-११-१ ।।

    The material manifestation’s ultimate particle, which is indivisible and not formed into a body, is called the atom. It exists always as an invisible identity, even after the dissolution of all forms. The material body is but a combination of such atoms, but it is misunderstood by the common man. ।। 3-11-1 ।।

  2. 2

    सत एव पदार्थस्य स्वरूपावस्थितस्य यत् । कैवल्यं परममहानविशेषो निरन्तरः ।। ३-११-२ ।।

    Atoms are the ultimate state of the manifest universe. When they stay in their own forms without forming different bodies, they are called the unlimited oneness. There are certainly different bodies in physical forms, but the atoms themselves form the complete manifestation. ।। 3-11-2 ।।

  3. 3

    एवं कालोऽप्यनुमितः सौक्ष्म्ये स्थौल्ये च सत्तम । संस्थानभुक्त्या भगवानव्यक्तो व्यक्तभुग्विभुः ।। ३-११-३ ।।

    One can estimate time by measuring the movement of the atomic combination of bodies. Time is the potency of the almighty Personality of Godhead, Hari, who controls all physical movement although He is not visible in the physical world. ।। 3-11-3 ।।

  4. 4

    स कालः परमाणुर्वै यो भुङ्क्ते परमाणुताम् । सतोऽविशेषभुग्यस्तु स कालः परमो महान् ।। ३-११-४ ।।

    Atomic time is measured according to its covering a particular atomic space. That time which covers the unmanifest aggregate of atoms is called the great time. ।। 3-11-4 ।।

  5. 5

    अणुर्द्वौ परमाणू स्यात्त्रसरेणुस्त्रयः स्मृतः । जालार्करश्म्यवगतः खमेवानुपतन्नगात् ।। ३-११-५ ।।

    The division of gross time is calculated as follows: two atoms make one double atom, and three double atoms make one hexatom. This hexatom is visible in the sunshine which enters through the holes of a window screen. One can clearly see that the hexatom goes up towards the sky. ।। 3-11-5 ।।
