Verse 17:-  Just as in object outside the body, Chidabhasa
has thus differentiated from Brahman, so within, the body
too Chidabhasa is to be differentiated from immutable Kutastha.

Verse 18:-  As fire pervades red-hot piece of iron, as Chidabhasa
pervades the I consciousness as well as lust, anger and

Verse 19:-  Even as a red-hot piece of iron manifests itself

another, that is wtih gaps in between, and they become latent,
during deep sleep and in the states of swoon and Samadhi.
