नैकस्मिन्, दर्शयतो हि ॥ ६ ॥
naikasmin, darśayato hi || 6 ||
na—Not; ekasmin—in one; darśayataḥ—(both) declare so; hi—for.
6. (The soul with Prana is merged) not in one (element only), for both (the Sruti and Smriti) declare so.
At the time of death, when the soul leaves one body and goes in for another, it together with the subtle body, abides in the fine essence of all the gross elements and not in fire only, for all the elements are required for a future body. Vide 8. 1. 2.
