चक्षुरादिवत्तु तत्सहशिष्ट्यादिभ्यः ॥ १० ॥
cakṣurādivattu tatsahaśiṣṭyādibhyaḥ || 10 ||
cakṣurādivat—Like eyes etc.; tu—but; tat-saha-śiṣṭyādibhyaḥ—on account of (its) being taught with them and other reasons.
10. But (Prana is subordinate to the soul) like eyes etc. on account of (its) being taught with them and for other reasons.
If the vital force is a separate entity from the organs, which are subordinate to it, then it, like the soul, must also be independent in the body. The Sutra refutes this and says that the vital farce is subordinate to the soul. Why? Because in the conversation of the Pranas which we find in the Upanishads it is mentioned along with the sense-organs. Now in such grouping only those of a class are grouped together. So the vital force, like the organs, is subordinate to the soul. The other reasons referred to in the Sutra are its being composed of parts, its being insentient, and so on.
