अतो’न्यापि ह्येकेषामुभयोः ॥ १७ ॥
ato’nyāpi hyekeṣāmubhayoḥ || 17 ||
ataḥ—From this; anya—different; api—also; hi—indeed; ekeṣām—of some (Sakhas); ubhayoḥ—of both.
17. (There are) indeed (good works) also different from this (daily Agnihotra and the like), (with reference to which is the statement) of some (Sakhas); (this is the view) of both (Jaimini and Badarayana).
Besides the Nitya Karma or regular works like the daily Agnihotra and the like there are other good works which are performed with a view to certain results. It is with reference to these that the following statement of some Sakhas is made: “His sons get his inheritance—friends his good works and enemies his evil actions.” Both Jaimini and Badarayana are of opinion that works done with a desire do not help the origination of Knowledge.
