bhoktā ca prabhur eva ca

tattvenātaś cyavanti te

‘Verily am I the Enjoyer of all sacrifices, and the sole Lord. But they know Me not rightfully. Hence do they fall.’

Prabhur-eva cha=I am the sole Lord, means: I everywhere am the Granter of fruit.

Stupendously strange it is, indeed, that by the self-same karma (sacrificial ceremonies etc)., engaged in (by men) with the simple difference of motive (with which it is performed) some merit poor fruit, and lose it again; but others come to possess the unlimited and transcendentally blissful fruit, —Paramātma Himself,— and not losing it for ever. This is explained:—
