अनात्मीयानि दुःखानि बहून्येवंविधान्ययम् ।
आत्मबुद्ध्या विचिन्वानो जनो गच्छति दीनताम् ॥ ३८ ॥

anātmīyāni duḥkhāni bahūnyevaṃvidhānyayam |
ātmabuddhyā vicinvāno jano gacchati dīnatām || 38 ||

The belief of the external body for the internal self, is the cause of all our woe herein; and so the taking of others as our own is equally for our misery.
