Verse 7.96.12

चिदाकाशं वर्जयित्वा शवमेव शरीरकम् ।
अच्छेद्योऽसावदाह्योऽसौ चिदाकाशो न शाम्यति ॥ १२ ॥

cidākāśaṃ varjayitvā śavameva śarīrakam |
acchedyo'sāvadāhyo'sau cidākāśo na śāmyati || 12 ||

The living body becomes a lifeless carcass, without this aeriform intellect; it is neither broken nor burnt with the fragile and burning body, nor is there any place to intercept the vacuous intellect there from.
