‘Never do those acts, Dhanañjaya! fetter Me; (for) I am, (or do sit) indifferent as one with no attachment for those acts.’
The diversities of creation etc, do not implicate Me, nor do they point to a charge of mercilessness being laid against Me; because, the reason for all differences such as devas, man etc., lies in the fact of embodied ātmas, —which are of a conscious (or intelligent) nature,— having, to their account, past deeds (which determine the varieties).
As for Myself, I am quite unconcerned as regard the differences, and I stand as a passive neutral. Says the Framer of the (Vedānta) Aphorisms (=the Sutrakāra=Vyāsa):
(If it be objected): ‘no Karma, because of non-distinction (between souls at time of dissolution)’; (we say) ‘no, because it (the ātmās) is beginningless; non-distinction holds also (because names and forms for ātmas were absent at time of dissolution), and it is so declared (by Śruti)’.3
