पुरुषत्वं यथा स्थाणोः संवेद्यं संविदस्तथा ।
यथा चन्द्रार्करश्मीनां दण्डता रेणुता तथा ॥ ७१ ॥

puruṣatvaṃ yathā sthāṇoḥ saṃvedyaṃ saṃvidastathā |
yathā candrārkaraśmīnāṃ daṇḍatā reṇutā tathā || 71 ||

It is as the stump of a tree, appearing as a man in the dark;and like the streaks and particles of sunbeams and moonlight, issuing through the chink of a window or wall, appear as fire: and so are all the cognizables of our cognition.
