mahatas tri-vṛto ’hamaḥ
sambhavaḥ sarga ucyate
avyākṛta — of the unmanifest stage of nature; guṇa-kṣobhāt — by the agitation of the modes; mahataḥ — from the basic mahat-tattva; tri-vṛtaḥ — threefold; ahamaḥ — from the false ego; bhūta-sūkṣma — of the subtle forms of perception; indriya — of the senses; arthānām — and the objects of sense perception; sambhavaḥ — the generation; sargaḥ — creation; ucyate — is called.
From the agitation of the original modes within the unmanifest material nature, the mahat-tattva arises. From the mahat-tattva comes the element false ego, which divides into three aspects. This threefold false ego further manifests as the subtle forms of perception, as the senses and as the gross sense objects. The generation of all these is called creation.
