1. 36

    भूतानां नभ आदीनां यद्यद्भव्यावरावरम् । तेषां परानुसंसर्गाद्यथा सङ्ख्यं गुणान् विदुः ।। ३-५-३६ ।।

    O gentle one, of all the physical elements, beginning from the sky down to the earth, all the inferior and superior qualities are due only to the final touch of the glance of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. ।। 3-5-36 ।।

  2. 37

    एते देवाः कला विष्णोः कालमायांशलिङ्गिनः । नानात्वात्स्वक्रियानीशाः प्रोचुः प्राञ्जलयो विभुम् ।। ३-५-३७ ।।

    The controlling deities of all the above-mentioned physical elements are empowered expansions of Lord Viṣṇu. They are embodied by eternal time under the external energy, and they are His parts and parcels. Because they were entrusted with different functions of universal duties and were unable to perform them, they offered fascinating prayers to the Lord as follows. ।। 3-5-37 ।।

  3. 38

    देवा ऊचुः नमाम ते देवपदारविन्दं प्रपन्नतापोपशमातपत्रम् । यन्मूलकेता यतयोऽञ्जसोरुसंसारदुःखं बहिरुत्क्षिपन्ति ।। ३-५-३८ ।।

    The demigods said: O Lord, Your lotus feet are like an umbrella for the surrendered souls, protecting them from all the miseries of material existence. All the sages under that shelter throw off all material miseries. We therefore offer our respectful obeisances unto Your lotus feet. ।। 3-5-38 ।।

  4. 39

    धातर्यदस्मिन् भव ईश जीवास्तापत्रयेणोपहता न शर्म । आत्मन् लभन्ते भगवंस्तवाङ्घ्रिच्छायां सविद्यामत आश्रयेम ।। ३-५-३९ ।।

    O Father, O Lord, O Personality of Godhead, the living entities in the material world can never have any happiness because they are overwhelmed by the three kinds of miseries. Therefore they take shelter of the shade of Your lotus feet, which are full of knowledge, and we also thus take shelter of them. ।। 3-5-39 ।।

  5. 40

    मार्गन्ति यत्ते मुखपद्मनीडैश्छन्दःसुपर्णैरृषयो विविक्ते । यस्याघमर्षोदसरिद्वरायाः पदं पदं तीर्थपदः प्रपन्नाः ।। ३-५-४० ।।

    The lotus feet of the Lord are by themselves the shelter of all places of pilgrimage. The great clear-minded sages, carried by the wings of the Vedas, always search after the nest of Your lotuslike face. Some of them surrender to Your lotus feet at every step by taking shelter of the best of rivers [the Ganges], which can deliver one from all sinful reactions. ।। 3-5-40 ।।
