बहवश्चेह कर्तारो दृष्ट्याऽनष्टकलङ्कया ॥ ३१ ॥

neha kartā na bhoktāsti dṛṣṭyā naṣṭakalaṅkayā |
bahavaśceha kartāro dṛṣṭyā'naṣṭakalaṅkayā || 31 ||

To the unstained (clear) sight, there is no other agent or object here, except the supreme; but the stained sight (of the clear eyed), views many agents and objects.
