Verse 3.64.13

यथा स्वतारकामार्गे व्योम्नः स्फुरति नीलिमा ।
शून्यस्याप्यस्य जीवस्य तथाहंभावभावना ॥ १३ ॥

yathā svatārakāmārge vyomnaḥ sphurati nīlimā |
śūnyasyāpyasya jīvasya tathāhaṃbhāvabhāvanā || 13 ||

As in looking up to heaven, its blue vault is presented to the sight, beyond which our eyes have not the power to pierce; so in our inquiry into the nature of soul, we see no more than the consciousness of ourselves, and nothing besides.
