Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrī Caitanya Caritāmṛta Madhya 20.361
viśva-sṛṣṭy-ādi kaila, veda brahmāke paḍāila
arthābhijñatā, svarūpa-śaktye māyā dūra kaila
viśva-sṛṣṭi-ādi — creation, maintenance and dissolution of the cosmic manifestation; kaila — performed; veda — the Vedic knowledge; brahmāke — unto Lord Brahmā; paḍāila — instructed; artha-abhijñatā — having full knowledge of past, present and future; svarūpa-śaktye — by His personal energy; māyā — the illusory energy; dūra kaila — separated.
"In that same verse it is stated that the Lord is the creator, maintainer and annihilator of the cosmic manifestation and that He enabled Lord Brahmā to create the universe by infusing him with the knowledge of the Vedas. It is also stated that the Lord has full knowledge, directly and indirectly, that He knows past, present and future, and that His personal energy is separate from māyā, the illusory energy.
