    आयुषोऽपचयं जन्तोस्तथैवोपचयं विभुः । उभाभ्यां रहितः स्वस्थो दुःस्थस्य विदधात्यसौ ।। ४-११-२१ ।।

    The Supreme Personality of Godhead, Viṣṇu, is all-powerful, and He awards the results of one’s fruitive activities. Thus, although one living entity’s duration of life is very small whereas that of another is very great, He is always in His transcendental position, and there is no question of lessening or increasing His duration of life. ।। 4-11-21 ।।

  2. 22

    केचित्कर्म वदन्त्येनं स्वभावमपरे नृप । एके कालं परे दैवं पुंसः काममुतापरे ।। ४-११-२२ ।।

    The differentiation among varieties of life and their suffering and enjoyment is explained by some to be the result of karma. Others say it is due to nature, others due to time, others due to fate, and still others say that it is due to desire. ।। 4-11-22 ।।

  3. 23

    अव्यक्तस्याप्रमेयस्य नानाशक्त्युदयस्य च । न वै चिकीर्षितं तात को वेदाथ स्वसम्भवम् ।। ४-११-२३ ।।

    The Absolute Truth, Transcendence, is never subject to the understanding of imperfect sensory endeavor, nor is He subject to direct experience. He is the master of varieties of energies, like the full material energy, and no one can understand His plans or actions; therefore it should be concluded that although He is the original cause of all causes, no one can know Him by mental speculation. ।। 4-11-23 ।।

  4. 24

    न चैते पुत्रक भ्रातुर्हन्तारो धनदानुगाः । विसर्गादानयोस्तात पुंसो दैवं हि कारणम् ‌‌।। ४-११-२४ ।।

    My dear son, those Yakṣas, who are descendants of Kuvera, are not actually the killers of your brother; the birth and death of every living entity are caused by the Supreme, who is certainly the cause of all causes. ।। 4-11-24 ।।

  5. 25

    स एव विश्वं सृजति स एवावति हन्ति च । अथापि ह्यनहङ्कारान्नाज्यते गुणकर्मभिः ।। ४-११-२५ ।।

    The Supreme Personality of Godhead creates this material world, maintains it, and annihilates it in due course of time, but because He is transcendental to such activities, He is never affected by ego in such action or by the modes of material nature. ।। 4-11-25 ।।
