Verse 3.96.41

चिन्निःस्पन्दो हि मलिनः कलङ्कविकलान्तरम् ।
मन इत्युच्यते राम न जडं न च चिन्मयम् ॥ ४१ ॥

cinniḥspando hi malinaḥ kalaṅkavikalāntaram |
mana ityucyate rāma na jaḍaṃ na ca cinmayam || 41 ||

When the action of the Intellect or the faculty of intellection, is vitiated by sensitivity, and becomes dull by reason of its inward dross; it is then styled the mind, which is neither a gross material thing, nor an intelligent spiritual principle.
