लोकवत्तु, लीलाकैवल्यम् ॥ ३३ ॥
lokavattu, līlākaivalyam || 33 ||
lokavat—As is seen in the world; tu—but; līlākaivalyam—mere pastime.
33. But (Brahman’s creative activity) is mere pastime, as is seen in the world.
Even as kings without any motive behind are seen to engage in acts for mere pastime, or even as men breathe without a purpose, for it is their very nature, or even as children play out of mere fun, so also Brahman without any purpose engages Itself in creating this world of diversity. This answers the objection raised in the previous Sutra against Brahman’s being the cause of the world.
