केचित्संमिलिताः केचिदात्मन्येवाभ्रमे स्थिताः ।
मग्नाः स्वसंवित्प्रसरे स्फुरन्तो देहखण्डकाः ॥ ५८ ॥

kecitsaṃmilitāḥ kecidātmanyevābhrame sthitāḥ |
magnāḥ svasaṃvitprasare sphuranto dehakhaṇḍakāḥ || 58 ||

Some persons rely on the union of the body and soul, and others relying in the soul alone, are placed beyond the reach of error; while there are many, who rely on their consciousness alone, and shine thereby as rational beings.
