विश्वाय तदुपद्रष्ट्रे तत्कर्त्रे विश्वहेतवे ॥ ४१ ॥
kālāya — unto time; kāla-nābhāya — unto Him who is the shelter of time; kāla-avayava — of the various phases of time; sākṣiṇe — to the witness; viśvāya — to the form of the universe; tad-upadraṣṭre — to the observer of it; tat-kartre — to the creator of it; viśva — of the universe; hetave — to the total cause.
Obeisances unto You, who are time itself, the shelter of time and the witness of time in all its phases. You are the universe, and also its separate observer. You are its creator, and also the totality of all its causes.
The Supreme Personality of Godhead, although appearing in different incarnations, can never be limited by time, since He is time itself, the shelter of time, and the witness of time in all its phases.
