Commentary.

          The universe is full of souls.  They are of two kinds:-

          Liberated and Mundane.

          Liberated souls are those which are quite free from karmic dirt and have no possibility of ever appearing again in the conditions, which arise from the bondage of the karmic matter with the soul. They are all-powerful, all-knowing, all perceiving, all-blissful, and absorbed in their own real and pure nature. These liberated souls always maintain their individual existence and abide at the topmost of the universe.
