अहं चिन्मात्रममलमित्यात्मानुभवं स्वयम् ।
अपहन्त्यात्महन्तारो निमज्जन्त्यापदर्णवे ॥ १८ ॥

ahaṃ cinmātramamalamityātmānubhavaṃ svayam |
apahantyātmahantāro nimajjantyāpadarṇave || 18 ||

He who knows himself to be the purely intellectual soul, and yet ignores it and thinks in himself to be dying as a mortal being; is verily the destroyer of his soul, and casts himself into a sea of troubles and misery.
