व्यतिरेको गन्धवत् ॥ २६ ॥
vyatireko gandhavat || 26 ||
vyatirekaḥ—The extension beyond (the object i.e. the soul); gandhavat—like odour.
26. The extension (of the quality of intelligence) beyond (the soul, in which it inheres) is like odour (which extends beyond the fragrant object).
We find that the sweet odour of flowers extends beyond them to the surrounding region. Even so the intelligence of the soul, which is atomic, extends beyond the soul and pervades the whole body.
