121. If according to your view the Self by himself is not bound by karmas and does not have emotional modifications such as anger, etc., then he must by nature remain non-manifesting. The next gatha says what is wrong if the Self remains incapable of manifestation.

122. If the Self does not of his own accord undergo emotional modifications such as anger, then empirical life or samsara will cease to be. This would result in the Sankhya view.

123. If you maintain that it is karmic matter, by its own potency, that causes in the Self emotional modifications such as anger, then how is it possible for matter to produce any modification in the Self which is by nature incapable of manifestation.

124. If it is your belief that the Self, without any extraneous influence, undergoes emotional modifications such as anger, then oh disciple! Your statement, "karmic matter of anger produces in the Self the emotion of anger," becomes false. 

125. The Self in association with karmic material conditions of anger, has the emotion of anger; of pride, has the emotion of pride; of deceipt, has the emotion of deceipt; of greed, has the emotion of greed.
