Srimad-Bhagavatam: Canto 9 - Chapter 1 - Verse 53-54


श्रीब्रह्मोवाचस्थानं मदीयं सहविश्वमेतत्क्रीडावसाने द्विपरार्धसंज्ञे ।भ्रूभङ्गमात्रेण हि सन्दिधक्षो:कालात्मनो यस्य तिरोभविष्यति ॥ ५३ ॥अहं भवो दक्षभृगुप्रधाना:प्रजेशभूतेशसुरेशमुख्या: ।सर्वे वयं यन्नियमं प्रपन्नामूर्ध्‍न्यार्पितं लोकहितं वहाम: ॥ ५४ ॥


śrī-brahmovācasthānaṁ madīyaṁ saha-viśvam etatkrīḍāvasāne dvi-parārdha-saṁjñebhrū-bhaṅga-mātreṇa hi sandidhakṣoḥkālātmano yasya tirobhaviṣyati


Lord Brahmā said: At the end of the dvi-parārdha, when the pastimes of the Lord come to an end, Lord Viṣṇu, by a flick of His eyebrows, vanquishes the entire universe, including our places of residence. Such personalities as me and Lord Śiva, as well as Dakṣa, Bhṛgu and similar great saints of which they are the head, and also the rulers of the living entities, the rulers of human society and the rulers of the demigods — all of us surrender to that Supreme Personality of Godhead, Lord Viṣṇu, bowing our heads, to carry out His orders for the benefit of all living entities.


In Bhagavad-gītā (10.34) it is said, mṛtyuḥ sarva-haraś cāham: when the Supreme Personality of Godhead approaches as death, or the supreme controller of time, He takes everything away. In other words, all opulence, prestige and everything we possess is given by the Supreme Lord for some purpose. It is the duty of the surrendered soul to execute the orders of the Supreme. No one can disregard Him. Under the circumstances, Lord Brahmā refused to give shelter to Durvāsā Muni from the powerful Sudarśana cakra sent by the Lord.
