Pleasure and Suffering are the Result of Virtue and Vice




II.14 In these lives, pleasure and suffering are fruits, the result of virtue and vice.

II.15 The discriminating mind knows the consequences of action and that mental suffering is a result of vrittis (fluctuating states of mind) due to the gunas, and indeed, everything is suffering.

II.16 Avoid suffering that is yet to manifest.

II.17 Avoid conjoining the seer and that which is seen.

II.18 That which is knowable has the nature of action, activity, and inertia, has the nature of the elements and the senses, for the purpose of experiencing liberation.

II.19 The gunas can be particular or imparticular, distinctive or indistinct.
