Verse 3.57.16

वास्तवेन तु रूपेण भूम्याद्यात्माधिभौतिकः ।
न शब्देन न चार्थेन सत्यात्मा शशश्रृङ्गवत् ॥ १६ ॥

vāstavena tu rūpeṇa bhūmyādyātmādhibhautikaḥ |
na śabdena na cārthena satyātmā śaśaśrṛṅgavat || 16 ||

The belief in the materiality of any body, as composed of the earth and other elements, is as false as it is to believe the hares to have horns on their heads.
