By His Divine Grace A.C.B. Swami Prabhupada
“Brahma, it is I, the Personality of Godhead, who was existing before the creation, when there was nothing but Myself. Nor was there the material nature, the cause of this creation. That which you see now is also I, the Personality of Godhead, and after annihilation what remains will also be I, the Personality of Godhead.” There is no other cause of all causes than the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Hari. One should be attached to the root of everything rather than bewildered by the branches and leaves.
