Yoga Sutra Illustration 1.24

God is untouched by impressions, afflictions, and actions

klesa karma vipaka asayaih aparamrstah purusa visesa isvarah

Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, 1.24

klesa = afflictions
karma = actions, causes
vipaka = the fruits of actions
asayaih = impressions
aparamrsthah = untouched
purusa = Self, Atman, Consciousness, Spirit
visesa = special
isvarah = God

The grass, the sky and the sun all seem to me to be a bit like this – untouched by impressions, actions and afflictions.
