कश्चिच्चित्तविलासोऽयं ब्रह्माहमिह संस्थितः ।
स्वभाव एव देहादि विद्धि शून्यतरात्मखात् ॥ २६ ॥

kaściccittavilāso'yaṃ brahmāhamiha saṃsthitaḥ |
svabhāva eva dehādi viddhi śūnyatarātmakhāt || 26 ||

It is only by a conceit of my mind, that I think myself situated as a Brahma in this place; otherwise all these material bodies, are known to be as unreal, as the vacuity of the soul wherein they abide.
