Verse 7.209.16

आविला संविदा संविच्छून्यया वेद्यते क्षणात् ।
न हि सन्नद्धगात्रस्य क्लेशोऽसन्नद्धमेदने ॥ १६ ॥

āvilā saṃvidā saṃvicchūnyayā vedyate kṣaṇāt |
na hi sannaddhagātrasya kleśo'sannaddhamedane || 16 ||

The guiltless man is in fear of his death for a moment only, but is conscious of the indestructibility of his inward soul, as a man clad in mail, is dauntless of the shafts of his unarmoured antagonist.
