Verse 6.32.11

कर्मात्मना वराकेण जीवेन मनसामुना ।
चाल्यन्ते देहयन्त्राणि पाषाणा इव वायुना ॥ ११ ॥

karmātmanā varākeṇa jīvena manasāmunā |
cālyante dehayantrāṇi pāṣāṇā iva vāyunā || 11 ||

The active mind which is always prone to action, leads the machine of the body together, with the passive and helpless living soul at random, as the winds drive about in different directions, together with the inert stones (ballast) contained in it.
