svakarmabhistato janmamṛtikāraṇatāṃ gataiḥ |
prayāntyūrdhvamadhastādvā karma citspanda ucyate || 30 ||

So the personal acts of people are the causes of their repeated births and deaths in this or other worlds; and they ascend higher or sink lower by virtue of their good or bad deeds, which proceed from their hearts and the nature of their souls.
