Verse 6.85.148

अस्मिन्स्वभाववशतो जगति प्ररूढे देहा भ्रमन्ति परितो विविधा विकाराः ।
प्रक्षीणवासनतया न भवन्ति केचिद्भूयो भवन्ति च पुनस्त्वितरे घनास्थाः ॥ १४८ ॥

asminsvabhāvavaśato jagati prarūḍhe dehā bhramanti parito vividhā vikārāḥ |
prakṣīṇavāsanatayā na bhavanti kecidbhūyo bhavanti ca punastvitare ghanāsthāḥ || 148 ||

It is under the power of this nature, that all things move about in the world in the various forms; and with all their properties of change and persistence. It is only the indifferent and inappetent soul that is liberated from the subjection of nature, while the apparent is fast bound to its chains and wander with their prurient nature in repeated transmigrations.
