प्रकृतं निश्चयारूढं भ्रमन्त्येते भवः स्वतः ॥ ४३ ॥

kālenaitādṛśaṃ rūpamidaṃ nānyatvameti vai |
prakṛtaṃ niścayārūḍhaṃ bhramantyete bhavaḥ svataḥ || 43 ||

This body does not become otherwise, though it may change from youth to age in course of time; because the natural form of a person retains its identity in every stage of life through which it has to pass.
