सर्वोपेता च तद्दर्शनात् ॥ ३० ॥
sarvopetā ca taddarśanāt || 30 ||
sarvopetā—Endowed with all; ca—and; tat-darśanāt—because it is seen.
30. And (Brahman is) endowed with all (powers), because it is seen (from the scriptures).
Generally we see that men endowed with a physical body possess such powers. But since Brahman has no body, it is not likely that It can possess such powers—so says the opponent.
This Sutra gives proof of Brahman’s being endowed with Maya Sakti, the power of Nescience. Various scriptural texts declare that Brahman possesses all powers. “The great Lord is the Mayin (the ruler of Maya)” (Svet. 4. 10). See also Chh. 8.14.4 and 8.7.1.
