अध्याय ४ :-सर्वात्माSarvamatma - Knower and the Non-knower of the Self
Janaka asserts that the Lord of the Universe can do as he pleases.
ज्यांच्या आंत मी-अहंकार-शिल्लक उरला नाहीं, सहज वाटयाला आलेले सुखदुःखाचे भोग भोगणार्या आत्मज्ञानी धीर पुरुषांची बरोबरी संसाराचें ओझें डोक्यावर घेणार्या मूढ पुरुषांना कधींही करतां येणार नाहीं. ॥१॥
1. Certainly the wise person of self-knowledge, playing the game of worldly life, bears no resemblance whatever to the world's bewildered beasts of burden.
2. Truly the one centered in mystic union feels no excitement even at being established in that state which all the gods from Indra down yearn for disconsolately.
3. He who has known That is untouched within by good deeds or bad, just as the sky is not touched by smoke, however much it may appear to be.
4. Who can prevent the great-souled person who has known this whole world as oneself from living as one pleases?
5. Of all the four categories of beings, from Brahma down to the driest clump of grass, only the person of knowledge is capable of eliminating desire and aversion.
6. Rare is the person who knows oneself as the undivided Lord of the world; no fear occurs to one who lives the truth.
