तस्मै तद्युज्यते वक्तुं सन्ति लोभादयस्त्विति ॥ २७ ॥

tasmai tadyujyate vaktuṃ santi lobhādayastviti || 27 ||

Those who slight the sight of the vacuous intellect, and view their bodies in the light of the spirit, deserve the name of corporeal beasts, and are receptacles of bodily appetites and passions only.
