Srimad Bhagavatham 4:31:17 & 18
यथा नभस्य् अभ्र-तमः-प्रकाशा भवन्ति भूपा न भवन्त्य् अनुक्रमात्
एवं परे ब्रह्मणि शक्तयस् त्व् अमू रजस् तमः सत्त्वम् इति प्रवाहः
तेन एकम् आत्मानम् अशेष-देहिनां कालं प्रधानं पुरुषं परेशम्
स्व-तेजसा ध्वस्त-गुण-प्रवाहम् आत्मैक-भावेन भजध्वम् अद्धा
O rulers of the globe! Just as the clouds, darkness, and light appear and disappear in the sky by turns so do the potencies of Brahman in the form of Rajas, Tamas and Sattva appear and disappear from the Absolute. So does the process of creation and dissolution continue uninterrupted.
So, by Chanting the Divine Names, worship you as one with yourselves The Lord Sri Hari Himself, The One soul of all embodied existences and who is Time (the efficient cause), the Unmanifest (the material cause) and the Supreme purusha (the doer) and who has by His energy (in the shape of Consciousness) cast out the material creation.
