māyā-dvāre sṛje teṅho brahmāṇḍera gaṇa
jaḍa-rūpā prakṛti nahe brahmāṇḍa-kāraṇa
Synonyms: 
māyā-dvāre — by the agency of the external energy; sṛje — creates; teṅho — Lord Saṅkarṣaṇa; brahmāṇḍera gaṇa — all the groups of universes; jaḍa-rūpā — appearing dull; prakṛti — the material energy; nahe — is not; brahmāṇḍa-kāraṇa — the cause of the cosmic manifestation.
Translation: 
“By the agency of the material energy, this same Lord Saṅkarṣaṇa creates all the universes. The dull material energy — known in modern language as nature — is not the cause of the material universe.
