Verse 3.54.71

वासनामात्रवैचित्र्यं यज्जीवोऽनुभवेत्स्वयम् ।
तस्यैव जीवमरणे नामनी परिकल्पिते ॥ ७१ ॥

vāsanāmātravaicitryaṃ yajjīvo'nubhavetsvayam |
tasyaiva jīvamaraṇe nāmanī parikalpite || 71 ||

The living soul therefore, is no more than the principle which is conscious of its various desires, affections and passions. It is not that principle to which the phases of life and death are attributed by men.
