Verse 3.64.9

शान्तत्वापगमेऽच्छस्य मनाक्संवेदनात्मकम् ।
स्वाभाविकं यत्स्फुरणं चिद्व्योम्नः सोऽङ्ग जीवकः ॥ ९ ॥

śāntatvāpagame'cchasya manāksaṃvedanātmakam |
svābhāvikaṃ yatsphuraṇaṃ cidvyomnaḥ so'ṅga jīvakaḥ || 9 ||

The living soul is possessed of a finite cognoscence as distinguished from the clear and calm consciousness of the Divine Spirit. Its vitality is a flash of the vacuous intellect of Brahma and appertaining to the nature of the living God. Divina particula aurae. The Lord says: 'Aham asmi—I am that I am'; but the living soul knows itself to be 'Soham asmi'—I am He or of Him.
