Verse 6.32.8

प्रविस्मृतस्वभावत्वाज्जीवोऽयं जडतां गतः ।
मोहाद्विस्मृतभावत्वाच्छूद्रतामिव सद्द्विजः ॥ ८ ॥

pravismṛtasvabhāvatvājjīvo'yaṃ jaḍatāṃ gataḥ |
mohādvismṛtabhāvatvācchūdratāmiva saddvijaḥ || 8 ||

It is by forgetfulness of its own and real nature, that the living soul contracts its foul gross object, as a legitimate twice-born man mistakes himself for a sudra by forgetting his birth by such error or illusion.
