<< Chapter 16 Verse 13


asau mayā hataḥ śatrur
haniṣye cāparān api
īśvaro ’ham ahaṁ bhogī
siddho ’haṁ balavān sukhī

‘(Say they): ‘By me has this foe been slain; and others too I am going to slay. I am Lord, I am the enjoyer, I am self-existent, I am powerful, and happy.’’

“Powerful as I am, this foe has been despatched by me; and hero and valiant as I am, I am going to do likewise to others. Are they not weak people and of little understanding who fancy and create a series of unseen causes (for all these matters)?.”

“Similarly, I am Lord, i.e, I am my own master, and also the ruler of others. I am the enjoyer, by my own making, not that by anything unseen I am so made! I am self-existent (siddha), not that I am made (or allowed) to exist by any Invisible Agency! Similarly, I am Powerful and happy by my own self’s means.”
