न च पर्यायादप्यविरोधः, विकारादिभ्यः॥ ३५ ॥
na ca paryāyādapyavirodhaḥ, vikārādibhyaḥ || 35 ||
na ca—Nor; paryāyāt—in turn; api—even; avirodhaḥ—consistency; vikārādibhyaḥ—on account of change etc.
35. Nor (can) consistency (be gained) even (if the soul is assumed to take on and discard parts) in turn (to suit different bodies), on account of the change etc. (of the soul in that case).
To get over the difficulty shown in the previous Sutra about the soul being of the size of the body it assumes, if it be regarded as having parts and alternately adding to and taking away from them, then another defect, viz. the soul undergoing modification and consequently being non-eternal, would arise. If it is non-eternal and ever-changing, bondage and Liberation cannot be predicated of it.
