|The Lord said, "Again I shall declare to you this supreme wisdom, the best of all knowledge, knowing which all the sages have attained the supreme perfection."|
By becoming knowledgeble, one can attain to the transcendental nature, which is like My own nature. Thus established, one is not born at the time of creation nor disturbed at the time of dissolution.
The total material substance, called Brahman, is the source of birth, and it is that Brahman that I impregnate, making possible the births of all living beings, O son of Bharata.
It should be understood that all species of life, O son of Kunti, are made possible by birth in this material nature, and that I am the seed-giving father.
Material nature consists of the three kinds-goodness, passion and ignorance. When the living entity comes in contact with nature, he becomes conditioned by these modes.
O sinless one, goodness being purer than the other, is illuminating, and it frees one from all sinful reactions. Those situated in that mode develop knowledge, but they become conditioned by the concept of happiness.
Passion is born of unlimited desires and longings, O son of Kunti, and because of this one is bound to material fruitive activities.
