Verse 5.74.17

तत्रायमहमागन्ता भोक्ता कर्तेति जायते ।
मुधैवाज्ञाततापोत्था मृगतृष्णेव वासना ॥ १७ ॥

tatrāyamahamāgantā bhoktā karteti jāyate |
mudhaivājñātatāpotthā mṛgatṛṣṇeva vāsanā || 17 ||

It is gross error only, that makes us believe the body as an automaton, or self-acting machine of its motions, actions and passions; and it is our sanguine wishes only, that present so many false views before us, as the solar heat, raises the mirage of water in the sandy desert.
