ṣaḍ-aiśvarya-pūrṇa kṛṣṇa haya sūryopama

Synonyms

sannyāsī — a person in the renounced order of life; cit-kaṇa jīva — a small fragmental living being; kiraṇa — of sunshine; kaṇa — small particle; sama — like; ṣaṭ-aiśvarya-pūrṇa — full in six opulences; kṛṣṇa — Lord Kṛṣṇa; haya — is; sūrya-upama — compared to the sun.

Translation

“A sannyāsī in the renounced order is certainly part and parcel of the complete whole, just as a shining molecular particle of sunshine is part and parcel of the sun itself. Kṛṣṇa is like the sun, full of six opulences, but the living entity is only a fragment of the complete whole.
