Verse 3.122.21

घटे कपालतां याते घटाकाशो न नश्यति ।
यथा तथा शरीरेऽस्मिन्नष्टेऽपि न विनश्यति ॥ २१ ॥

ghaṭe kapālatāṃ yāte ghaṭākāśo na naśyati |
yathā tathā śarīre'sminnaṣṭe'pi na vinaśyati || 21 ||

When a jar is broken in twain from its upper part, its vacuity is not lost, but mixes with the air; so the body being destroyed, the indestructible soul is not lost with it.
