|The soul in its
true nature is unaffected by evil-doing in any, or by kindness either. True understanding
is darkened by ignorance, there by are creatures deluded.
He sees the truth who perceives that the forces of material
nature really bring about all actions, and that the Self is actionless.
When one perceives the common basis of all diversified
existence and how everything shapes itself and spreads out from it, one realizes Brahma.
Being beginningless and without material qualities, the
immutable and pure soul, though seated in the bad, neither acts nor is affected.
