<< Chapter 13 verse 30


yathā sarva-gataṁ saukṣmyād
ākāśaṁ nopalipyate
sarvatrāvasthito dehe
tathātmā nopalipyate

‘As, being subtle, the all-pervading ākāśa (space) is soiled not, so is ātma tainted not, though everywhere present in body.’

Ākāśa or space prevails everywhere, and is in contact with all objects; and yet by reason of its subtle nature, the properties of those objects never stain it. So is ātma very subtle, and though it do dwell everywhere in the bodies of deva, man etc., the peculiar properties (or natures) that pertain to such bodies do not sully it.

>> Chapter 13 verse 33
