CC Madhya 6.181
- svāgamaiḥ kalpitais tvaṁ ca
- janān mad-vimukhān kuru
- māṁ ca gopaya yena syāt
- sṛṣṭir eṣottarottarā
sva-āgamaiḥ—with your own theses; kalpitaiḥ—imagined; tvam—you; ca—also; janān—the people in general; mat-vimukhān—averse to Me and addicted to fruitive activities and speculative knowledge; kuru—make; mām—Me, the Supreme Personality of Godhead; ca—and; gopaya—just cover; yena—by which; syāt—there may be; sṛṣṭiḥ—material advancement; eṣā—this; uttara-uttarā—more and more.
“[Addressing Lord Śiva, the Supreme Personality of Godhead said:] ‘Please make the general populace averse to Me by imagining your own interpretation of the Vedas. Also, cover Me in such a way that people will take more interest in advancing material civilization just to propagate a population bereft of spiritual knowledge.’
