The living entities in the material world are forgetful of their eternal relationship with the Supreme Personality of Godhead. This forgetfulness is called avidyā, or nescience. The avidyā-śakti, the avidyā potency of the material world, provokes fruitive activity. Although this avidyā-śakti (material energy, or nescience) is also an energy of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, it is especially intended to keep the living entities in a state of forgetfulness. This is due to their rebellious attitude toward the Lord. Thus although the living entities are constitutionally spiritual, they come under the influence of the potency of nescience. How this happens is described in the following verse. #/div# #/div# please wait#div class="mw-parser-output"# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TEXT_154"#TEXT 154#/span##/h4# #div class="verse"# #dl##dd#viṣṇu-śaktiḥ parā proktā#/dd# #dd#kṣetra-jñākhyā tathā parā#/dd# #dd#avidyā-karma-saṁjñānyā#/dd# #dd#tṛtīyā śaktir iṣyate#/dd##/dl# #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="SYNONYMS"#SYNONYMS#/span##/h4# #div class="synonyms"# viṣṇu-śaktiḥ—the internal potency of Lord Viṣṇu, the Supreme Personality of Godhead; parā—spiritual; proktā—said; kṣetra-jña—the living entities; ākhyā—known as; tathā—also; parā—spiritual; avidyā—nescience, or godlessness; karma—and fruitive activities; saṁjñā—known as; anyā—another; tṛtīyā—third; śaktiḥ—potency; iṣyate—is accepted as. #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TRANSLATION"#TRANSLATION#/span##/h4# #div class="translation"# “‘The internal potency of the Supreme Lord, Viṣṇu, is spiritual, as verified by the śāstras.
