12) Vijñānī mauna mādhatte, nāstikaḥ pūrvaniścayaḥ ।
Āśrave jīvanaṃ svairaṃ, pāpi bhagnaṃ bhavediti ।।

[A scientist keeps silent about miracles because he recognises that the miracles are true, but, are beyond the human reasoning. The atheist decides even before examining the miracles that the miracles are fraud and all that is just magic only. The atheist fears for miracles because if miracles are accepted, the existence of unimaginable God and punishments for sins in unimaginable ways have to be accepted by which the free life of enjoyment doing all sorts of sins gets disturbed.]

 

13) Maunaṃ sādhu yatastaddhi, mauna vyākhyeyamucyate ।
Prāgeva nāstikamataṃ, mūḍhamāgraha niṣṭhuram ।।

[The silence shown by scientist about the genuine miracles stands to be the perfect explanation about unimaginable God. The unimaginable God or ParaBrahman is said to be best expressed by silence only. We have great regards for science, but not for atheism, which is prejudiced in the beginning itself without any trial to enquire and investigate about miracles.]

 

14) Maryādā saṃskṛteḥ loke, vijñānaṃ matamucyate ।
ParaBrahma pramābhaṅgo, na doṣaḥ sarvasaṅgateḥ ।।

[Science is accepted as one of various religions in this world because of its dignity and frankness in the field of knowledge. Science fails in knowing the unimaginable God because unimaginable God is after all unimaginable only. In the case of this imaginable world, we consider science as the topmost authority.]

 

15) Siddhānta mātraḥ tarko hi, na prayogāt dhvanir guṇaḥ ।
Ākāśasyeti no sādhuḥ, vātāṇubhiḥ sa nīyate ।।

[The ancient logic, which is purely theoretical, is showing certain defects due to lack of experimental verification. For example, ancient logic says that sound is the property of space or vacuum. But, it is wrong because sound needs a medium for propagation like air. Science corrects this point in the ancient logic.]

 

16) Ciddaivamiti doṣo'yaṃ, jaḍaśakti kriyākṛteḥ ।
Nāḍīṣu pariṇāmena, śṛteranyanniṣedhataḥ ।।

[Based on the ancient logic several scholars thought that awareness is God. But, science proves that awareness is a specific work form of inert energy released from the digestion of food and subsequent oxidation in mitochondria cells, which is transformed into awareness in functioning brain-nervous system. Even though science fails to say what is God, it succeeds in saying what is not God. The Veda rejects all items of the imaginable world as God (Neti neti...) because God is unimaginable.]

 

17) Duḥkhaheto raghāt muktiḥ, Jñāna tāpa kriyācyuteḥ ।
Mahāvakāśa evāyaṃ, Daivānugraha sañcitaḥ ।।

[Sin is the reason for misery and if sin is not repeated, all the entire punishments of pending sins are also cancelled. Realisation, repentance and non-repetition of the sin constitute the total process of reformation. This is the greatest opportunity given to the soul by the kindest God.]

 

18) Nāstyupāyo'nyathā proktāt, yujyate daṇḍanaṃ yataḥ ।
Apunaḥ karaṇāyaiva, siddhe daṇḍo vṛthā punaḥ ।।

[There is no method for the cancellation of pending sins along with the present sin other than the above said method. The above method is logical because if sin is not repeated, there is no need of pending punishments. The reason is that any punishment aims at only non-repetition of the sin again in the world.]

 

19) Daṇḍadoṣo'sti yenāyaṃ, na ciraṃ parivartitaḥ ।
Vimukto daṇḍitaścoraḥ, punaścoro guṇāvṛteḥ ।।

[The punishment has also one defect, which is that it cannot bring a permanent reformation of the soul. After the punishment, the soul is temporarily reformed for some time only. A thief punished severely for his sins and released will not commit the theft for some time only. After some time, the thief will repeat the sin again due to the sinful nature induced by the surrounding atmosphere.]

 

20) Jñānaṃ pāpaṃ dahatyeva, śāśvataṃ daivabhītidam ।
Īśvaraḥ prīta etena, sevakāya nirantaram ।।

[The Spiritual knowledge will burn all the sinful attitudes from the soul and hence, only Spiritual knowledge brings permanent reformation in the soul. Along with the Spiritual knowledge, if fear for sin is also introduced through the inevitable punishment to be given by unimaginable God, effective and permanent reformation of the soul appears. Hence, propagation of Spiritual knowledge alone brings transformation of the world by which God is tremendously pleased forever if the soul serves God with this service of propagation of Spiritual knowledge.]

 

Iti Trailokyagītāyāṃ ‘Kartavyatattvayogo’ nāma dvitīyādhyāyaḥ ।।

(Like this, in Trailokyagītā, the second chapter called ‘the association of philosophy of divine duty’ is completed).
