"As innumerable particles of dust pass through the tiny holes in a screen, similarly from the pores of the Maha-Vishnu's body innumerable universes emanate. As He breathes out, innumerable universes are produced, and as He inhales, they are annihilated.."

Today's Smart Quote is from the to Teachings of Lord Caitanya, Chapter Eight, "The Avatars":

. . . These innumerable universes are produced from the pores of the Maha-Vishnu's body. As innumerable particles of dust pass through the tiny holes in a screen, similarly from the pores of the Maha-Vishnu's body innumerable universes emanate. As He breathes out, innumerable universes are produced, and as He inhales, they are annihilated. All of the energies of the Maha-Vishnu are spiritual, and they have nothing to do with the material energy. In Brahma-samhita ( 5.48) it is stated that the predominating deity of each universe, Brahma, lives only during one breath of the Maha-Vishnu. Thus Maha-Vishnu is the original Supersoul of all the universes and the master of all universes as well.
