CC Ādi 5.62

māyā-aṁśe kahi tāre nimitta-kāraṇa
seha nahe, yāte kartā-hetu — nārāyaṇa
Word for word: 
māyā-aṁśe — to the other portion of the material nature; kahi — I say; tāre — unto her; nimitta-kāraṇa — immediate cause; seha nahe — that cannot be; yāte — because; kartā-hetu — the original cause; nārāyaṇa — Lord Nārāyaṇa.
Translation: 
The māyā aspect of material nature is the immediate cause of the cosmic manifestation. But it cannot be the real cause, for the original cause is Lord Nārāyaṇa.
