Srimad Bhagvata Mahapurana: Book 11: Chapter 10: Verses 34-37

Time, Atma, Sastra, the world, Nature and Dharma are the various names by which I am called when the equilibrium of the three (illusive) qualities is disturbed or they are agitated. Uddhava said : O Lord, though associated with a body etc., why should not the Jiva be bound by actions begotten of body ? Or having no connection with them, how does the soul get tied to them ? How does a person liberated or bound behave or sport and by what characteristics is he to be known ? How does he eat, ease nature, sleep, sit or walk ? 0 Acyuta, the foremost of those expert in answering questions ! (pray) answer this question. My mistaken notion is as to whether the same Atma is (both) ever bound and ever liberated (too).

Thus ends the tenth discourse forming part of the Dialogue between the Lord and Uddhava,

in Book Eleven of the great and glorious Bhagavata-Purana, otherwise known as the Paramahamsa-Samhita.
