Verse 4.31.28

भूतता व्यतिरेकेण मूढे नात्मनि किंचन ।
ऊर्म्यादिबुद्धौ हेमेव ज्ञे नास्ति परमार्थता ॥ २८ ॥

bhūtatā vyatirekeṇa mūḍhe nātmani kiṃcana |
ūrmyādibuddhau hemeva jñe nāsti paramārthatā || 28 ||

The ignorant have no notion of the spirit, beside that of matter, which they believe as the cause and effect (Karya Karana) of its own production; but the learned man sees the substantive spirit, in all forms of creation, as he views the substance of gold in all the ornaments made of that metal.
