saṁsāra-tāpān akhilān
avāpnoty atra santatān
yayā—by which; kṣetra-jña-śaktiḥ—the living entities, known as the kṣetra-jña potency; —that potency; veṣṭita—covered; nṛpa—O King; sarva-—capable of going anywhere in the spiritual or material worlds; saṁsāra-tāpān—miseries due to the cycle of repeated birth and death; akhilān—all kinds of; avāpnoti—obtains; atra—in this material world; santatān—arising from suffering or enjoying various kinds of reactions to fruitive activities.
" 'O King, the kṣetra-jña-śakti is the living entity. Although he has the facility to live in either the material or spiritual world, he suffers the threefold miseries of material existence because he is influenced by the avidyā [nescience] potency, which covers his constitutional position.
