प्रभवन्ति विना येन नोत्थापयितुमोजसा ॥ ७१ ॥
prabhavanti vinā yena
yathā — just as; prasuptam — sleeping; puruṣam — a man; prāṇa — the vital air; indriya — the senses for working and recording knowledge; manaḥ — the mind; dhiyaḥ — the intelligence; prabhavanti — are able; vinā — without; yena — whom (the Supersoul); na — not; utthāpayitum — to arouse; ojasā — by their own power.
When a man is sleeping, all his material assets — namely the vital energy, the senses for recording knowledge, the senses for working, the mind and the intelligence — cannot arouse him. He can be aroused only when the Supersoul helps him.
The explanation of Sāṅkhya philosophy is described here in detail in the sense that the virāṭ-puruṣa, or the universal form of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, is the original source of all the various sense organs and their presiding deities. The relationship between the virāṭ-puruṣa and the presiding deities or the living entities is so intricate that simply by exercising the sense organs, which are related to their presiding deities, the virāṭ-puruṣa cannot be aroused. It is not possible to arouse the virāṭ-puruṣa or to link with the Supreme Absolute Personality of Godhead by material activities. Only by devotional service and detachment can one perform the process of linking with the Absolute.
