1. 11

    यं न पश्यतिपश्यन्तं चक्षुर्यस्य न रिष्यति । तं भूतनिलयं देवं सुपर्णमुपधावत ।। ८-१-११ ।।

    Although the Supreme Personality of Godhead constantly watches the activities of the world, no one sees Him. However, one should not think that because no one sees Him, He does not see, for His power to see is never diminished. Therefore, everyone should worship the Supersoul, who always stays with the individual soul as a friend. ।। 8-1-11 ।।

  2. 12

    न यस्याद्यन्तौ मध्यं च स्वः परो नान्तरं बहिः । विश्वस्यामूनि यद्यस्माद्विश्वं च तदृतं महत् ।। ८-१-१२ ।।

    The Supreme Personality of Godhead has no beginning, no end and no middle. Nor does He belong to a particular person or nation. He has no inside or outside. The dualities found within this material world, such as beginning and end, mine and theirs, are all absent from the personality of the Supreme Lord. The universe, which emanates from Him, is another feature of the Lord. Therefore the Supreme Lord is the ultimate truth, and He is complete in greatness. ।। 8-1-12 ।।

  3. 13

    स विश्वकायः पुरुहूत ईशः सत्यः स्वयञ्ज्योतिरजः पुराणः । धत्तेऽस्य जन्माद्यजयाऽऽत्मशक्त्या तां विद्ययोदस्य निरीह आस्ते ।। ८-१-१३ ।।

    The entire cosmic manifestation is the body of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, the Absolute Truth, who has millions of names and unlimited potencies. He is self-effulgent, unborn and changeless. He is the beginning of everything, but He has no beginning. Because He has created this cosmic manifestation by His external energy, the universe appears to be created, maintained and annihilated by Him. Nonetheless, He remains inactive in His spiritual energy and is untouched by the activities of the material energy. ।। 8-1-13 ।।

  4. 14

    अथाग्रे ऋषयः कर्माणीहन्तेऽकर्महेतवे । ईहमानो हि पुरुषः प्रायोऽनीहां प्रपद्यते ।। ८-१-१४ ।।

    Therefore, to enable people to reach the stage of activities that are not tinged by fruitive results, great saints first engage people in fruitive activities, for unless one begins by performing activities as recommended in the śāstras, one cannot reach the stage of liberation, or activities that produce no reactions. ।। 8-1-14 ।।

  5. 15

    ईहते भगवानीशो न हि तत्र विषज्जते । आत्मलाभेन पूर्णार्थो नावसीदन्ति येऽनु तम् ।। ८-१-१५ ।।

    The Supreme Personality of Godhead is full in opulence by His own gain, yet He acts as the creator, maintainer and annihilator of this material world. In spite of acting in that way, He is never entangled. Hence devotees who follow in His footsteps are also never entangled. ।। 8-1-15 ।।
