ॐ रचनानुपपत्तेश्च नानुमानम् ॐ ॥ २.२.१॥
ॐ racananupapattesca nanumanam ॐ || 2.2.1||
The inferred one (Pradhana) is not (the cause) owing to the impossibility of explaining the design, as also for other reasons.

Shloka :   1

ॐ प्रवृत्तेश्च ॐ ॥ २.२.२॥
ॐ pravrttesca ॐ || 2.2.2||

ॐ payo'mbuvaccettatrapi ॐ || 2.2.3||

ॐ abhyupagame'pyarthabhavat ॐ || 2.2.6||

ॐ पुरुषाश्मवदितिचेत्तथापि ॐ ॥ २.२.७॥
ॐ purusasmavaditicettathapi ॐ || 2.2.7||

Padaha :   2

Shloka :   7

ॐ अङ्गित्वानुपपत्तेः ॐ ॥ २.२.८॥
ॐ aṅgitvanupapatteh ॐ || 2.2.8||

ॐ अन्यथानुमितौ च ज्ञशक्तिवियोगात् ॐ ॥ २.२.९॥
ॐ anyathanumitau ca jñasaktiviyogat ॐ || 2.2.9||

ॐ विप्रतिषेधाच्चासमञ्जसम् ॐ ॥ २.२.१०॥
ॐ vipratisedhaccasamañjasam ॐ || 2.2.10||

ॐ महद्दीर्घवद्धा ह्रस्वपरिमण्डलाभ्याम् ॐ ॥ २.२.११॥
ॐ mahaddirghavaddha hrasvaparimanḍalabhyam ॐ || 2.2.11||
Rather (the universe may originate from Brahman) even as the great and long (triads) originate from the short (dyad) or the inextensive (atom).

Adhyaya : 2

Padaha :   2

Shloka :   11

ॐ उभयथापि न कर्मातस्तदभावः ॐ ॥ २.२.१२॥
ॐ ubhayathapi na karmatastadabhavah ॐ || 2.2.12||
(Whether adrista leads the atoms or conjunction helps them), in either case no action is possible and hence there can be no creation or dissolution.

ॐ समवायाभ्युपगमाच्च साम्यादनवस्थितेः ॐ ॥ २.२.१३॥
ॐ samavayabhyupagamacca samyadanavasthiteh ॐ || 2.2.13||
And (there can be no creation or dissolution) by reason of assuming inherence, for this leads to an infinite regress on a parity of reasoning.

Shloka :   13

ॐ नित्यमेव च भावात् ॐ ॥ २.२.१४॥
ॐ nityameva ca bhavat ॐ || 2.2.14||

ॐ रूपादिमत्त्वाच्च विपर्ययो दर्शनात् ॐ ॥ २.२.१५॥
ॐ rupadimattvacca viparyayo darsanat ॐ || 2.2.15||
And on account of the possession of colour etc., there will be a reversal (of the nature of the atoms), for this accords with experience.

Shloka :   15

ॐ उभयथा च दोषात् ॐ ॥ २.२.१६॥
ॐ ubhayatha ca dosat ॐ || 2.2.16||

ॐ aparigrahaccatyantamanapeksa ॐ || 2.2.17||

ॐ itaretarapratyayatvaditi cennautpattimatranimittatvat ॐ || 2.2.19||
If it be argued that a combination becomes possible since (nescience and the rest) can be the causes of one another (in a successive series), then we say, no, (for nescience etc.,) can each merely be the cause of origin of another just succeeding.

Adhyaya : 2

Padaha :   2

Shloka :   19

ॐ उत्तरोत्पादे च पूर्वनिरोधात् ॐ ॥ २.२.२०॥
ॐ uttarotpade ca purvanirodhat ॐ || 2.2.20||
And because the earlier is negated when the later emerges, (therefore nescience and the rest cannot each be the cause of the next in the series).

Padaha :   2

Shloka :   20

ॐ असति प्रतिज्ञोपरोधो यौगपद्यमन्यथा ॐ ॥ २.२.२१॥
ॐ asati pratijñoparodho yaugapadyamanyatha ॐ || 2.2.21||
(If it be contended that the effect arises) even when there is no cause, then your assertion (of causation) will be stultified; else (if you contend that the entity of the earlier moment continues till the entity of the later moment emerges), the cause and effect will exist simultaneously.

Adhyaya : 2

Shloka :   21

ॐ प्रतिसङ्ख्याप्रतिसङ्ख्यानिरोधाप्राप्तिः अविच्छेदात् ॐ ॥ २.२.२२॥

Neither pratisamkhya-nirodha (artificial annihilation) nor an apratisamkhya-nirodha (natural annihilation) is possible, for there can be no cessation (either of the current or of the individuals forming the current).

ॐ karanavaccenna bhogadibhyah ॐ || 2.2.40||
Should it be argued that God will direct Nature like (a man directing) the organs, then it cannot be so, for that will result in God's having experiences (of happiness, sorrow).
