Verse 6.53.56

प्रतिबिम्बेष्विवादर्शसमं साक्षिवदास्थितम् ।
नश्यत्सु न विनश्यन्तं यः पश्यति स पश्यति ॥ ५६ ॥

pratibimbeṣvivādarśasamaṃ sākṣivadāsthitam |
naśyatsu na vinaśyantaṃ yaḥ paśyati sa paśyati || 56 ||

The divine soul is as a large mirror, showing the images of things upon its surface, like reflections on the glass; and though these reflections disappear and vanish in time, yet the mirror of the soul is never destroyed, but looks as it looked before.
