<< Chapter 15 verse 9


utkrāmantaṁ sthitaṁ vāpi
bhuñjānaṁ vā guṇānvitam
vimūḍhā nānupaśyanti
paśyanti jñāna-cakṣuṣaḥ

‘The unenlightened perceive not (it, the soul), the Guṇa-conjoined quitter, dweller, enjoyer; but they perceive, —the wisdom-eyed.’

Vimūdhāḥ=the unenlightened=those who fancy the corporeal outward configuration, man etc., to be the soul; and these perceive not the soul itself —which is guṇa- conjoined i.e., is bound into the conditions of man and other guṇa-full matter-moulded forms, —or as it which is discovered to quit such corporeal forms, —or as it which is seen to abide in such forms, —or as it which is seen to enjoy or taste of guṇa-sated sense-objects, —or as it which is distinct from all human and other matter-made fleshly forms, or as it which is essentially intelligent (jñānaik-ākāram).

Jñāna-chakshushaḥ = The wisdom-eyed: are those who are enlightened as to how ātma-nature differs from body-forms. And these perceive ātma in its essential nature, wherever it may dwell or whatever it may be doing.
