English Translation - Dr. S. Sankaranarayan

13.30. Whosoever views all actions as being performed (or all objects as being created), indeed by the Material Cause itself and at the same time views his own Self as non-performer (or non-creator) - he veiws properly.

English Translation of Commentary - Dr. S. Sankaranarayan

13.30 Prakrtya etc. He whose firm conviction is of this nature The Material Cause alone performs (or creates) this; I do nothing - he, though he performs (or creates) all, does not perform (or create) anything [in fact]. In this manner, is the absence of doership in him.
