As the embodied soul waxes from childhood to youth,
then wanes to old age,
and assumes one new body after another,
wise men are not prey to infatuation.
At some time a man is a boy and then he grows into a young man.
But does he die by this?
Then he grows old.
The Self is ever the same;
only the condition of the physical body in which he resides goes on changing.
There is no crack in him when he changes over to a new body.
