|Madhya-līlā||Chapter 20: Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu Instructs Sanātana Gosvāmī in the Science of the Absolute Truth|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 20.259
māyā-dvāre sṛje teńho brahmāṇḍera gaṇa
jaḍa-rūpā prakṛti nahe brahmāṇḍa-kāraṇa
māyā-dvāre — by the agency of the external energy; sṛje — creates; teńho — Lord Sańkarṣaṇa; brahmāṇḍera gaṇa — all the groups of universes; jaḍa-rūpā — appearing dull; prakṛti — the material energy; nahe — is not; brahmāṇḍa-kāraṇa — the cause of the cosmic manifestation.
"By the agency of the material energy, this same Lord Sańkarṣaṇa creates all the universes. The dull material energy — known in modern language as nature — is not the cause of the material universe.
