ŚB 1.5.6

स वै भवान् वेद समस्तगुह्य-
मुपासितो यत्पुरुष: पुराण: ।
परावरेशो मनसैव विश्वं
सृजत्यवत्यत्ति गुणैरसङ्ग: ॥ ६ ॥
sa vai bhavān veda samasta-guhyam
upāsito yat puruṣaḥ purāṇaḥ
parāvareśo manasaiva viśvaṁ
sṛjaty avaty atti guṇair asaṅgaḥ


saḥ — thus; vai — certainly; bhavān — yourself; veda — know; samasta — all-inclusive; guhyam — confidential; upāsitaḥ — devotee of; yat — because; puruṣaḥ — the Personality of Godhead; purāṇaḥ — the oldest; paraavaraīśaḥ — the controller of the material and spiritual worlds; manasā — mind; eva — only; viśvam — the universe; sṛjati — creates; avati atti — annihilates; guṇaiḥ — by the qualitative matter; asaṅgaḥ — unattached.


My lord! Everything that is mysterious is known to you because you worship the creator and destroyer of the material world and the maintainer of the spiritual world, the original Personality of Godhead, who is transcendental to the three modes of material nature.


A person who is cent-percent engaged in the service of the Lord is the emblem of all knowledge. Such a devotee of the Lord in full perfection of devotional service is also perfect by the qualification of the Personality of Godhead. As such, the eightfold perfections of mystic power (aṣṭa-siddhi) constitute very little of his godly opulence. A devotee like Nārada can act wonderfully by his spiritual perfection, which every individual is trying to attain. Śrīla Nārada is a cent-percent perfect living being, although not equal to the Personality of Godhead.
