The idea of this verse is very nicely expressed in the Kaá¹ha Upaniá¹£ad (2.2.13) and ÅvetÄÅvatara Upaniá¹£ad (6.13). It is clearly stated there that above the innumerable living entities, some of whom are conditioned and some of whom are liberated, there is the Supreme Personality, who is ParamÄtmÄ. The Upaniá¹£adic verse runs as follows: nityo nityÄnÄá¹ cetanaÅ cetanÄnÄm. The purport is that amongst all the living entities, both conditioned and liberated, there is one supreme living personality, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who maintains them and gives them all the facility of enjoyment according to different work. That Supreme Personality of Godhead is situated in everyoneâs heart as ParamÄtmÄ. A wise man who can understand Him is eligible to attain perfect peace, not others.
