CC Madhya 8.87

From Vanisource

His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


ākāśādira guṇa yena para-para bhūte
dui-tina krame bāḍe pañca pṛthivīte


ākāśa-ādira—of the sky, air and so on; guṇa—the qualities; yena—just as; para-para—one after another; bhūte—in the material elements; dui-tina—two and then three; krame—by gradations; bāḍe—increase; pañca—all five; pṛthivīte—in earth.


“The qualities in the material elements—sky, air, fire, water and earth—increase one after another by a gradual process of one, two and three, and at the last stage, in the element earth, all five qualities are completely visible.
