इत्येवमादिपापानां पुण्यानां च फलं महत् ।
ब्रह्मसंकल्पकचितं यथा यद्यत्तथैव तत् ॥ ७ ॥

ityevamādipāpānāṃ puṇyānāṃ ca phalaṃ mahat |
brahmasaṃkalpakacitaṃ yathā yadyattathaiva tat || 7 ||

Such is the effect of the primeval guilt and merit of mankind, that they are endowed with double bodies, consisting of their physical frames and spiritual souls (the one maculate and the other immaculate) and such the divine soul even from before.
