          335.          When the soul gives up (attachment to) the infinite forms of he fruition of karmas, then the knowing and the believing ascetic becomes liberated.



          A right believing and right knowing ascetic gives up all attachment to all kinds of Karmic fruits and is contented with his own souls pure peace and happiness. He begins to free himself from Karmic bondage and he is at last liberated.

          336.          The ignorant engross din the various forms (of operative Karmas) certainly enjoys the fruit of Karmas. While the knower (merely) knows fruition of Karmas, but is not affected by the operative (Karmas).



          A wise person suffering from disease knows it to be due to some outward cause of hi carelessness and inward cause of his pain-feeling Karma. He calmly uses medicine for it and tries to be cured, and feels no worry. Similarly a right knower calmly bears the effects of Karmas and is not affected by them.

          337.          Again th faultless soul, remains fearless. Relaying the �I� it is ever engrossed in self-devotion.



          A right-believing, and therefore faultless person, is brave and has no fear of being destroyed or injured. He is ever engaged in self-devotion and meditates that �I am the pure, peaceful, happy soul.� He attains self-realisation.

          338.   The soul inoperable of Liberation, even after having read the scriptures, does not give up karmas. Serpents may drink sugar and milk, but they do not thereby become passionless.

339.   Fixed in non-attachment, the knower knows the fruition of Karmas, sweet, bitter, of many kinds. He is therefore described as non-affected.



          Just as the director of a drama is not affected by the parts the actors play, similarly the true believer sees the drama of life, but is not affected thereby.

340.   The knower neither performs nor feels the Karmas of many kinds, but knows the fruition of Karma�s, their bondage, merits and demerits.

          341.          The eye itself is neither the cause nor the perceier. Knowledge also knows Bondage, Liberation, Operation, and the shedding of Karmas.
