Acit Padartha Prakaranam

 

21. maya-saktiracidgunavati paravarakarya rupac ca

 

  The external energy of the Supreme Personality of Godhead Shri  Krishna is endowed with material qualities whose transformation results in  the evolution of many details of this unlimited cosmic manifestation. 

 

22. jadatvat krtisunya cetana prerita bhavati sajnjavavat

 

  Matter being unconscious, cannot act by itself. When activated by  consciousness (spirit) it begins to work. 

 

23. sa parananuraktanam karavadhehati bandhanarupa

 

  Those living entities who are averse to Shri Krishna, the Supreme  Personality of Godhead, are imprisoned in variegated bodies by the  external energy, maya.  

 

24. anadirananta ca paramesvara saktitatvat

 

  The external energy is without beginning or end because it is the  divine energy of the Supreme Lord Shri Krishna.  

 

25. kalenarthantaram baddhanam prakrti sambandha-rupatvat

 

  Time is a form of relation between the conditioned souls and the  external energy.  

 

26. saivadhisthanarupini desa samjnita

 

  The external energy constitutes the accomodation, which is known  as space.    

 

27. jade baddhasyananda bhramo vaikuntha bhramascasangat

 

  Conditioned by matter, the living entity mistakes sense  gratification as bliss and material existence as the transcendental abode  due to association with matter.  

 

28. vivekena tato vimuktih

 

  To become free from these delusions one should discriminate by  transcendental knowledge of the Absolute Truth.  

 

29. na ca prakrtavadindriyagrahyatvam vaikunthasyadhaksajatvat

 

  The spiritual world is transcendental - beyond mundane sensual  perception.    

 

30. indriyani tadvisayastajjata bhavas ca manasasaha prakrtascid-upadhitvajjanyatvac ca

 

  The mundane senses, sense objects, the feelings derived from their  contact, and the mind -- all these are 'material' in existence, due to the  conditioned state of the living entities.
