Verse 6.32.47

स्वभाववशतो जीवो विस्मृत्या शक्तिमृच्छति ।
वैवश्यात्कालवशतः पर्णं जर्जरतामिव ॥ ४७ ॥

svabhāvavaśato jīvo vismṛtyā śaktimṛcchati |
vaivaśyātkālavaśataḥ parṇaṃ jarjaratāmiva || 47 ||

As the living soul forgets its spiritual nature, and becomes decayed in course of time and according to the frail nature of material things; so it fades and falls away in the manner of the withered leaves of trees.
