False attribution of Atman – Atribución falsa del Atman

As fire appears to have small or great volume, and beginning and end, through being falsely identified with the burning wood, so does the Atman appear to take on the attributes of the body by dwelling within it.

Srimad Bhagavatam, 6: iv


Lo mismo que el fuego parece tener más o menos volumen, y comienzo y fin, al ser falsamente identificado con la madera que arde, así el Atman parece tomar los atributos del cuerpo al habitar en él.

Srimad Bhagavatam, 6: iv
