नन्दीकेश्वरलिङ्गमाहात्म्यवर्णने ब्राह्मणीस्वर्गतिवर्णनं नाम षष्ठोऽध्यायः
Brahmani’s attainment of heaven description in Nandikeshwara Linga importance description Chapter 6

वत्स उवाच |
Calf said (to the cow, his mother)

किं कर्तव्यं क्व गन्तव्यं कर्मबद्धा वयं यतः |
कृतं चैव यथा पूर्वं भुज्यतं च तथाऽधुना || 12 ||
हसता क्रियते कर्म रुदता परिभुज्यते |
दुःखदाता न कोप्यस्ति सुखदाता न कश्चन || 13 ||
सुखदुःखे परो दत्त इत्येषा कुमतिर्मता |
अहं चापि करोम्यत्र मिथ्याज्ञानं तदोच्यते || 14 ||
What to do, where to go, since we are bound by karma? And the way (karma has been) done in the past, accordingly has to be enjoyed/suffered now.
Karma is done laughing/smiling, (its fruits are) suffered crying. No one is the giver of sorrow/unhappiness, nobody is the giver of happiness.
That someone has given happiness or sorrow is considered bad thinking. And that “I am doing here” is then called fake (false) knowledge.
