Verse 6.55.19

स कृष्यते वासनया रज्वेव पशुपोतकः ।
स तिष्ठति शरीरान्तः पञ्जरे विहगो यथा ॥ १९ ॥

sa kṛṣyate vāsanayā rajveva paśupotakaḥ |
sa tiṣṭhati śarīrāntaḥ pañjare vihago yathā || 19 ||

The embodied and living soul is led by its desire, as the young of a beast is carried about tied by a rope on its neck; and it dwells in the recess of the body, like a bird in the cage.
