Verse 5.71.22

चिन्मात्रस्यात्मनो देहसंबन्ध इति या कथा ।
सैषा दुरवबोधार्था दावाग्नौ जलधिर्यथा ॥ २२ ॥

cinmātrasyātmano dehasaṃbandha iti yā kathā |
saiṣā duravabodhārthā dāvāgnau jaladhiryathā || 22 ||

The dictum of the connection of the body with the pure intellect of the soul, is as improbable as the subsistence of a sea in a conflagration.
