Verse 3.65.8

अनात्मालोकनाच्चित्तं चित्तत्वं नानुशोचति ।
वेतालकल्पनाद्बाल इव संकल्पिते भये ॥ ८ ॥

anātmālokanāccittaṃ cittatvaṃ nānuśocati |
vetālakalpanādbāla iva saṃkalpite bhaye || 8 ||

Want of spiritual light misleads the mind from its rationality, and makes it take its false imaginations for true; as children are impressed with a belief of ghosts in shadows, through their fear and want of true knowledge.
