कोऽहं कथमिदं दृश्यं को जीवः किं च जीवनम् ।
इति तत्त्वज्ञसंयोगाद्यावज्जीवं विचारयेत् ॥ १८ ॥

ko'haṃ kathamidaṃ dṛśyaṃ ko jīvaḥ kiṃ ca jīvanam |
iti tattvajñasaṃyogādyāvajjīvaṃ vicārayet || 18 ||

Make it the duty of your whole life, to argue with the learned, concerning such like topics, as “what am I,” and what are these visible objects; what is life and what this living soul, and how and whence they come into existence.
