niyamāt—Or account of prescribed rules; ca—and.
7. And on account of prescribed rules.
“Performing works here let a man wish to live a hundred years” (Is. 2); “Agnihotra is a sacrifice lasting up to old age and death; for through old age one is freed from it or through death” (Sat. Br. 12. 4. 1. 1). From such prescribed rules also we find that Knowledge stands in a subordinate relation to work.
