1. 31

    तैजसानीन्द्रियाण्येव ज्ञानकर्ममयानि च । तामसो भूतसूक्ष्मादिर्यतः खं लिङ्गमात्मनः ।। ३-५-३१ ।।

    The senses are certainly products of the mode of passion in false ego, and therefore philosophical speculative knowledge and fruitive activities are predominantly products of the mode of passion. The sky is a product of sound, and sound is the transformation of egoistic ignorance. In other words, the sky is the symbolic representation of the Supreme Soul. ।। 3-5-31 ।।

  2. 32

    कालमायांशयोगेन भगवद्वीक्षितं नभः । नभसोऽनुसृतं स्पर्शं विकुर्वन्निर्ममेऽनिलम् ।। ३-५-३२ ।।

    Thereafter the Personality of Godhead glanced over the sky, partly mixed with eternal time and external energy, and thus developed the touch sensation, from which the air in the sky was produced. ।। 3-5-32 ।।

  3. 33

    अनिलोऽपि विकुर्वाणो नभसोरुबलान्वितः । ससर्ज रूपतन्मात्रं ज्योतिर्लोकस्य लोचनम् ।। ३-५-३३ ।।

    Thereafter the extremely powerful air, interacting with the sky, generated the form of sense perception, and the perception of form transformed into electricity, the light to see the world. ।। 3-5-33 ।।

  4. 34

    अनिलेनान्वितं ज्योतिर्विकुर्वत्परवीक्षितम् । आधत्ताम्भो रसमयं कालमायांशयोगतः ।। ३-५-३४ ।।

    When electricity was surcharged in the air and was glanced over by the Supreme, at that time, by a mixture of eternal time and external energy, there occurred the creation of water and taste. ।। 3-5-34 ।।

  5. 35

    ज्योतिषाम्भोऽनुसंसृष्टं विकुर्वद्ब्रह्मवीक्षितम् । महीं गन्धगुणामाधात्कालमायांशयोगतः ।। ३-५-३५ ।।

    Thereafter the water produced from electricity was glanced over by the Supreme Personality of Godhead and mixed with eternal time and external energy. Thus it was transformed into the earth, which is qualified primarily by smell. ।। 3-5-35 ।।
