प्राणभृच्च ॥ ४ ॥
prāṇabhṛcca || 4 ||
prāṇabhṛt—The living or individual soul; ca—also (na—not).
4. (Nor) also the individual soul.
The word ‘not’ has to be inferred from the previous Sutra.
Nor is it the individual soul, though it is an intelligent principle and can therefore be denoted by the word ‘Self’; for it is impossible to conceive the individual soul as omniscient and as the resting-place of the whole universe.
