Verse 5.87.19

पुरुषः सांख्यदृष्टीनामीश्वरो योगवादिनाम् ।
शिवः शशिकलाङ्कानां कालः कालैकवादिनाम् ॥ १९ ॥

puruṣaḥ sāṃkhyadṛṣṭīnāmīśvaro yogavādinām |
śivaḥ śaśikalāṅkānāṃ kālaḥ kālaikavādinām || 19 ||

He became like the Purusha or spirit of the Sankhya materialists, and the Iswara of Yoga philosophers; he was alike the Siva of the Sivites, bearing the mark of the crescent moon on their foreheads, and as the Time of Timeists.
