All these words (which are made of chEthanas (sentient entities) and achEthana (insentient entities)) and are pervaded by my antharyAmi (in-dwelling super-soul) form which is subtle; all creatures are (resting) in me (who is the antharyAmi) but I am not (resting) in them [like they rest in me as a dependent].

‘By Me is all this Kosmos filled, —by My subtle Form. All existences find in Me their rest, but I do not rest in them.’
