CC Madhya 25.142 (1975)
- ataeva bhāgavata-sūtrera 'artha'-rūpa
- nija-kṛta sūtrera nija-'bhāṣya'-svarūpa
ataeva—therefore; bhāgavata—Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam; sūtrera—of the Brahma-sūtra; artha—of the meaning; rūpa—the form; nija-kṛta—made by himself; sūtrera—of the Vedānta-sūtra; nija-bhāṣya—of his own commentary; svarūpa—the original form.
"Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam gives the actual meaning of the Vedānta-sūtra. The author of the Vedānta-sūtra is Vyāsadeva, and he himself has explained those codes in the form of Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam.
