Inert energy that remains in the deep sleep is devoid of qualities

 

66) Sushuptisiddhanirgunajadashaktyaatmaa nityah.

 

(The eternal Aatman or the inert energy that remains in the deep sleep is devoid of qualities, which are properties of awareness).

 

The entity that does the work of knowing is the inert energy or Aatman that remains in the deep sleep. It is eternal because the inert energy is never destroyed even in the final dissolution of the world. This Aatman is nirguna, meaning devoid of qualities. Here the word quality is restricted to the property of awareness only and not the property in general. In deep sleep, awareness disappears and hence all its qualities also disappear. This inert energy left over in deep sleep, which is devoid of qualities is called as nirguna Aatman. Remember that the word quality here is confined to the property of awareness only and not to any inert property.

 

This inert energy is the material cause of this creation

 

67) Aatmaa Brahma srushtimulam mulaprakrutih sarvamidam .

 

(This inert energy remaining in deep sleep called as Aatman can be called as Brahman because this inert energy is the material cause of this creation. It is called as mula prakruti. Since, matter is also its form only, the body is also inert energy and thus basically continuous homogeneity is achieved as it is this entire creation).

The inert energy limited to the body is called as Aatman. Even the body or matter is basically inert energy and hence there is no discontinuity of the inert energy. Even the space is inert energy. In this way the homogeneous Brahman is the result. This greatest inert energy can be called as Brahman or Mula prakruti. Since, the body cannot limit the inert energy in basic sense, Aatman is simultaneously Brahman. This entire creation is generated from this mula prakruti, which is called as Brahman (Kaarya Brahman).

 

Mula Prakruti or inert energy is dynamic and is also work

68) Paramaarthe tasya drusi saapi kriyaiva vyavahaare kartaa .

 

(Even this mula prakruti or inert energy is dynamic and is also work. But this absolute concept is in the view of God only. In the relative view of the souls, this inert energy or matter is entity that does work).

 

Even this mula prakruti is just work of God in the view of the God, which is the absolute reality. But in the view of souls, only relative reality becomes absolute and hence for souls the same inert energy acts as an entity doing the work.

 

The awareness is a verb in the relative reality or the view of the souls

 

69) Vyavahaara eva chit kriyaa paramaarthaanupapattih .

 

(The awareness is a verb in the relative reality or the view of the souls. Hence, there is no use of dragging down the view of absolute reality to save chit).

There is no need of bringing the absolute reality in to the present discussion because chit is proved as a verbal noun or verb in the relative reality itself, where the inert energy is the noun or entity or doer. There is no use of converting the inert energy into work in the view of God, because there is no necessity for such effort. Already in the relative reality itself, chit is proved to be a verb or verbal noun and not actual noun.
