Verse 6.55.28

अयं देहो हि जीवेन त्वसन्नेवावलोकितः ।
अस्य नाशे त्वमप्येवं पश्य मा वा सुषुप्तवत् ॥ २८ ॥

ayaṃ deho hi jīvena tvasannevāvalokitaḥ |
asya nāśe tvamapyevaṃ paśya mā vā suṣuptavat || 28 ||

The soul comes to find all these forms and bodies, to be as unreal as those it has left behind; and so must you reckon all bodies after they are destroyed, unless you be so profoundly asleep as to see and know nothing.
