Verse 7.18.11

खवातैः खसमाः प्राणा यथोह्यन्ते मनोमयाः ।
उह्यन्ते वै तथैतानि तदङ्गानि जगन्त्यपि ॥ ११ ॥

khavātaiḥ khasamāḥ prāṇā yathohyante manomayāḥ |
uhyante vai tathaitāni tadaṅgāni jagantyapi || 11 ||

As the etherial airs bear the vital airs, which are of the same kind with them (both being airy substances); so are the vital breaths accompanied with particles of the mind (which is equally an airy substance also), these again bear the pictures of the worlds in them, as if they are ingrafted upon them.
