समाध्यभावाच्च ॥ ३९ ॥
samādhyabhāvācca || 39 ||
samādhi-abhāvāt—On account of the impossibility of Samadhi; ca—and.
39. And on account of the impossibility of Samadhi.
If the soul is not an agent, then the realization prescribed by texts like, “The Atman is to be realized” (Brih. 2. 4. 5), through Samadhi would be impossible. It will not be capable of activities like “hearing, reasoning, and meditation” that lead to Samadhi, in which state perfect Knowledge dawns. Therefore there will be no Liberation for the soul. So it is established that the soul alone is the agent, and not the Buddhi.
