- sahasra-śirasaṁ sākṣād
- yam anantaṁ pracakṣate
- saṅkarṣaṇākhyaṁ puruṣaṁ
sahasra-śirasam—with a thousand heads; sākṣāt—directly; yam—whom; anantam—Ananta; pracakṣate—they all; saṅkarṣaṇa-ākhyam—Saṅkarṣaṇa by name; puruṣam—the Supreme Personality of Godhead; bhūta—the gross elements; indriya—the senses; manaḥ-mayam—consisting of the mind.
The threefold ahaṅkāra, the source of the gross elements, the senses and the mind, is identical with them because it is their cause. It is known by the name of Saṅkarṣaṇa, who is directly Lord Ananta with a thousand heads.
