Panchadasi - (166)

The  Chapter XIV continues...

Verse 13:- As water does not stick to the leaves of a lotus,
so after realization, future actions cannot stick to the knower.

(See Chandogya Up. 4.14.3;)

(Recall Bhagavan's disinterest in observance of lunar eclipse
formalities and regulations.)

Verse 14:- Just as the cotton-like flowers of the Isika reed,
are burnt by fire in a moment, so the accumulated past actions
of the knower are burnt up because of realization.

(See Chandogya Up. 5.24.3;)

Verse 15:- Sri Krishna says:  "Just as a blazing fire reduces
the fuel to ashes, so, O Arjuna, the fire of knowledge burns
up all actions."

(See Srimad Bhagavad Gita: 4.37;)

Verse 16:- "He who has no notion of 'I-ness' and whose mind
is not tainted by desire for results of action is not really a
killer even if he kills people and he is not bound by is actions."

(See Srimad Bhagavad Gita 18.17;)
