102-Kaaya nirnayavadolu manavanirnaya...

1.     English Translation:       This body can be seen, measured and determined. The mind inside the body is quite the opposite; cannot be seen, measured or determined for certain. One can count and visualise the strengths of the muscles of the body. The life essence that makes them work is neither seen nor can be measured. A person is always a mixture of these measurable and immeasurable entities; only such a mixture makes him complete and interesting. Same is true for this world also. – Mankutimma
