SrI: SrImathE SatakOpAya nama: SrImathE rAmAnujAya nama: SrImath varavaramunayE nama:
tatraivaṁ sati kartāram
ātmānaṁ kevalaṁ tu yaḥ
na sa paśyati durmatiḥ
‘It being so, whoso looketh on his mere self as the actor, is one of warped will. He seeth not, since enlightenment hath not dawned (on him as yet).’
In verity, the agentship of Jīvātma is subject to the sanction of Paramātma; and such being the case, should one fancy that one’s own self is the actor in all independence, he is to be considered as durmati, or one whose understanding (or will) is perverted. And since no enlightenment (or wisdom) has yet bloomed in his case, he sees not, i.e., sees not every other necessary factor that is needed to constitute his agentship.
