Verse 3.63.2

एष त्वात्मा सर्वशक्तित्वाच्च क्वचिच्चिच्छक्तिं प्रकटयति क्वचिच्छान्तिं क्वचिज्जडशक्तिं क्वचिदुल्लासं क्वचित्किंचिन्न किंचित्प्रकटयति ॥ २ ॥

eṣa tvātmā sarvaśaktitvācca kvaciccicchaktiṃ prakaṭayati kvacicchāntiṃ kvacijjaḍaśaktiṃ kvacidullāsaṃ kvacitkiṃcinna kiṃcitprakaṭayati || 2 ||

This Essence is the Spirit or Soul, whose omnipotence developes itself sometimes in the form of intellectual activity, and sometimes in the tranquillity of soul. Sometimes it shows itself in the momentum of bodies, and at others in the force of the passions and emotions of the soul. Sometimes as something in the form of creation, and at another as nothing in the annihilation of the world.
