Chapter 18 -- Verse 14-15

Verse: 
adhiṣṭhānaṃ tathā kartā karaṇaṃ ca pṛthagvidham | 
vividhāśca pṛthakceṣṭā daivaṃ caivātra pañcamam ||

śarīravāṅmanobhiryatkarma prārabhate naraḥ |
nyāyyaṃ vā viparītaṃ vā pañcaite tasya hetavaḥ ||

अधिष्ठानं तथा कर्ता करणं च पृथग्विधम् । 

विविधाश्च पृथक्चेष्टा दैवं चैवात्र पञ्चमम् ॥

शरीरवाङ्मनोभिर्यत्कर्म प्रारभते नरः ।
न्याय्यं वा विपरीतं वा पञ्चैते तस्य हेतवः ॥

Translation: The "seat" (body), the doer (ego), the various organs-of-perception, the different functions of various organs-of-action, and also the presiding deity, the fifth. Whatever action a man performs by his body, speech and mind --- whether right, or the reverse --- these five are its causes.
