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.
