न केचन महाबाहो भूचरेण नभस्वतः ।
अदिव्येनाश्रिता ज्ञानैर्दृश्यन्ते पुरुषेन्द्रियैः ॥ ५३ ॥

śrīvasiṣṭha uvāca |
na kecana mahābāho bhūcareṇa nabhasvataḥ |
adivyenāśritā jñānairdṛśyante puruṣendriyaiḥ || 53 ||

Vasishtha replied:—It is true, Rama, as you say, that the aerial spirit of siddhas, are invisible to earthly mortals with the imperfect organs of their bodies, and without the aid of supernatural organs.
