न च्छिद्ये न च दह्येऽहं चिन्मात्रं वज्रवच्चिति ।
न देही निश्चयो यस्य तं प्रत्यन्तकरस्तृणम् ॥ २८ ॥

na cchidye na ca dahye'haṃ cinmātraṃ vajravacciti |
na dehī niścayo yasya taṃ pratyantakarastṛṇam || 28 ||

He who knows himself to be infrangible and uninflammable, and as the solid and impregnable stone in his intellect, and not in his unreal body; cares a fig for his death.
