Verse 3.95.14

हेतुर्विहरणे तेषामात्मविस्मरणादृते ।
न कश्चिल्लक्ष्यते साधो जन्मान्तरफलप्रदः ॥ १४ ॥

heturviharaṇe teṣāmātmavismaraṇādṛte |
na kaścillakṣyate sādho janmāntaraphalapradaḥ || 14 ||

We see no other cause of their continuous revolution in this manner, except the forgetfulness of their reminiscence, which makes them oblivious of their original state, and conform with every mode of their metempsychosis into new forms.
