<< Chapter 18 Verse 57.5


atha cet tvam ahaṅkārān
na śroṣyasi vinaṅkṣyasi

‘But if from egotism thou wilt not heed (Me)
thou wilt perish.’

Egotism (ahaṅkāra) = the notion of selfness: I know well what is proper to be done and what is not.’ If from such notion thou wilt pay no heed to Me, thou wilt become a ruined person. For verily no one except Myself, amongst the infinity of creatures, is a knower of what is proper, or not, to be done; nor is there (amongst them) a Governor like Myself.

>> Chapter 18 Verse 59
