CC Madhya 20.250


prathamei kare kṛṣṇa ‘puruṣāvatāra’
seita puruṣa haya trividha prakāra


prathamei — in the beginning; kare — does; kṛṣṇa — Lord Kṛṣṇa; puruṣa-avatāra — the incarnation of the three Viṣṇus (Mahā-Viṣṇu, Garbhodakaśāyī Viṣṇu and Kṣīrodakaśāyī Viṣṇu); seita — that; puruṣa — Viṣṇu; haya — becomes; tri-vidha prakāra — three different manifestations.


“In the beginning, Kṛṣṇa incarnates Himself as the puruṣa-avatāras, or Viṣṇu incarnations. These are of three types.


Up to this verse, the many types of expansions have been described. Now the manifestations of the Lord’s different potencies will be described.
