संविन्मात्रस्वभावत्वाद्देहोऽहमिति चेतति ।
काकतालीयवद्भ्रान्तमाकारं तेन पश्यति ॥ ३८ ॥

saṃvinmātrasvabhāvatvāddeho'hamiti cetati |
kākatālīyavadbhrāntamākāraṃ tena paśyati || 38 ||

Being of the nature of intelligence it is imperishable; but those who view the spirit in the form of any phenomenal body, are liable to perish with it like all embodied beings.
