    श्रीरुद्र उवाच वयं न तात प्रभवाम भूम्नि यस्मिन् परेऽन्येऽप्यजजीवकोशाः । भवन्ति काले न भवन्ति हीदृशाः सहस्रशो यत्र वयं भ्रमामः ।। ९-४-५६ ।।

    Lord Śiva said: My dear son, I, Lord Brahmā and the other demigods, who rotate within this universe under the misconception of our greatness, cannot exhibit any power to compete with the Supreme Personality of Godhead, for innumerable universes and their inhabitants come into existence and are annihilated by the simple direction of the Lord. ।। 9-4-56 ।।
