CC Madhya 20.261
Śrī Caitanya-caritāmṛta - Madhya-līlā - Chapter 20: Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu Instructs Sanātana Gosvāmī in the Science of the Absolute Truth
- īśvarera śaktye sṛṣṭi karaye prakṛti
- lauha yena agni-śaktye pāya dāha-śakti
īśvarera śaktye—by the energy of the Supreme Personality of Godhead; sṛṣṭi—creation; karaye—does; prakṛti—material energy; lauha—iron; yena—as; agni-śaktye—by the power of fire; pāya—gets; dāha-śakti—the power to burn.
“Dull matter alone cannot create anything. The material energy produces the creation by the power of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Iron itself has no power to burn, but when iron is placed in fire, it is empowered to burn.
