तेभ्यो विराजमुद्धृत्य तमनु प्राविशद्विभु: ॥ २१ ॥
tebhyo virājam uddhṛtya
tam anu prāviśad vibhuḥ
sṛṣṭvā — after creating; agre — in the beginning; mahat-ādīni — the total material energy; sa-vikārāṇi — along with the sense organs; anukramāt — by a gradual process of differentiation; tebhyaḥ — out of that; virājam — the gigantic universal form; uddhṛtya — manifesting; tam — unto that; anu — later; prāviśat — entered; vibhuḥ — the Supreme.
After creating the total material energy, the mahat-tattva, and thereby manifesting the gigantic universal form with senses and sense organs, the Supreme Lord entered within it.
Fully satisfied by the answers of the sage Maitreya, Vidura wanted to understand the remaining portions of the creative function of the Lord, and he took the clue from the previous topics.
