Verse 6.87.30

कोऽहं कथमिदं जातं कथं शाम्यति चेति भोः ।
राजन्नावेक्षसे कस्मात्किमज्ञ इव तिष्ठसि ॥ ३० ॥

ko'haṃ kathamidaṃ jātaṃ kathaṃ śāmyati ceti bhoḥ |
rājannāvekṣase kasmātkimajña iva tiṣṭhasi || 30 ||

Why is it that you do not employ your mind to inquire into the questions as to what thou art, and how has this world came to existence, and how and when will cease to exist (in your consciousness of reality). Instead of making inquiries in these solemn truths, you are passing your time like the ignorant in your fooleries only?
