Verse 4.18.56

अन्तरेवाखिलं कश्चित्पश्यत्यविमलं जगत् ।
तत्रातिकालकलनादुन्मज्जति निमज्जति ॥ ५६ ॥

antarevākhilaṃ kaścitpaśyatyavimalaṃ jagat |
tatrātikālakalanādunmajjati nimajjati || 56 ||

Some men view the whole gross world within the body, instead of the all pervading intellect of Brahma; as Viswarupa, and these being hardened by long habit of thinking so, are plunged in the gulph of error.
