|Canto 3: The Status Quo||Chapter 31: Lord Kapila's Instructions on the Movements of the Living Entities|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 3.31.22
evaḿ kṛta-matir garbhe
daśa-māsyaḥ stuvann ṛṣiḥ
sadyaḥ kṣipaty avācīnaḿ
kapilaḥ uvāca — Lord Kapila said; evam — thus; kṛta-matiḥ — desiring; garbhe — in the womb; daśa-māsyaḥ — ten-month-old; stuvan — extolling; ṛṣiḥ — the living entity; sadyaḥ — at that very time; kṣipati — propels; avācīnam — turned downward; prasūtyai — for birth; sūti-mārutaḥ — the wind for childbirth.
Lord Kapila continued: The ten-month-old living entity has these desires even while in the womb. But while he thus extols the Lord, the wind that helps parturition propels him forth with his face turned downward so that he may be born.
