anyatra bhūtācca bhavyācca yattatpaśyasi tadvada || 14 ||
14. What thou seest other than virtue and vice, other than what is made and what is not, other than the past and the future, tell me that.
Com.—If I am worthy, and you are, Oh Baghavan, pleased with me: other than virture, i.e., different from the performance of acts enjoined by the Sâstras, their fruits and their requisites and similarly from vice; other than what is made, i.e., effect; and what is not made, i.e., cause; and again other than the past, i.e., time gone by; and the future, i.e., time yet to come; and similarly the present, i.e., what is not conditioned by time (past, present and future); if you see or know anything like this, beyond the reach of all wordly experience, tell me that.
