कामकारेण चैके ॥ १५ ॥
kāmakāreṇa caike || 15 ||
kāmakāreṇa—According to their choice; ca—and; eke—some.
15. And some according to their choice (have refrained from all work).
In Sutra 3 it was said that Janaka and others were engaged in work even after Knowledge. This Sutra says that some have of their own accord given up all work. The point is that after Knowledge some may choose to work to set an example to others, while others may give up all work. There is no binding on the knowers of the Self as regards work.
