असन्ततेश्चाव्यतिकरः ॥ ४९ ॥
asantateścāvyatikaraḥ || 49 ||
asantateḥ—Non-extension (beyond its own body); ca—and; avyatikaraḥ—there is no confusion (of results of actions).
49. And on account of the non-extension (of the soul beyond its own body) there is no confusion (of results of actions).
An objection is raised that on account of the unity of the Self there would result a confusion of the results of actions; that is, everyone would get the results of the actions of everyone else. This Sutra refutes such a possibility; for an individualized soul means the connection of the Atman with a particular body, mind, etc., and since these are not overlapping, the individual souls are different from each other. Hence there is no such possibility of confusion.
