Attaining the Supreme
Chapter 8: Verse-20

paras tasmät tu bhävo ’nyo ’vyakto ’vyaktät sanätanah
yah sa sarvesu bhütesu naçyatsu na vinasyati[1]


Yet there is another unmanifest nature, which is eternal and is transcendental to this manifested and unmanifested matter. It is supreme and is never annihilated. When all in this world is annihilated, that part remains as it is.


Krsna’s superior, spiritual energy is transcendental and eternal. It is beyond all the changes of material nature, which is manifest and annihilated during the days and nights of Brahmä. Krsna’s superior energy is completely opposite in quality to material nature. Superior and inferior nature are explained in the Seventh Chapter.



  1. parah=transcendental; tasmät=to that; tu=but; bhävah=nature; anyah=another; avyaktah=unmanifest; avyaktät=to the unmanifest; sanätanah=eternal; yah sah=that which; sarvesu=all; bhütesu=manifestation; nasyatsu=being annihilated; na=never; vinasyati=is annihilated.
