Verse 7.173.3

श्रीवसिष्ठ उवाच ।
शरीरिणो यथा हस्ते हस्ततायां यथाग्रहः ।
सर्वात्मनस्तथा देहे देहतायां तथाग्रहः ॥ ३ ॥

śrīvasiṣṭha uvāca |
śarīriṇo yathā haste hastatāyāṃ yathāgrahaḥ |
sarvātmanastathā dehe dehatāyāṃ tathāgrahaḥ || 3 ||

Vasishtha replied:—It is by common usage and mode of speech, that the universal soul is said to reside as the ego or personal being in the body; as it is by common use of language only, to take the hands of the body as hands, and not to understand the feet as such.
