Title: Panchadasi - (144)
Post by: Subramanian.R on August 27, 2008, 12:22:01 PM
The Chapter XIII continues.....

Verse 28:- By such entertaining tales, Vasishta described the
power of Maya.  This power is now being described more fully.

Verse 29:- This power is different both from the effect and also
from its substratum.  The blister, (which is the effect) and the
charcoal (the substratum) are cognized objects. But the power
to burn is different from the effect, viz., the blister.       

Verse 30:-  The pot with its properties of thickness, roundness
and so forth, is the products of power acting on the clay, with
its five properties of sound, touch, form, taste, and smell,
but the power is different here, from both the pot and the clay.

Verse 31:-  In the power that creates the pot, there is neither
form nor quality.  As it is, it remains, even when it has produced
the effect, it undergoes no change.  It is therefore said to be
beyond thought and description.

To be contd.....
