    इत्युत्ससर्ज स्वं देहं निमिरध्यात्मकोविदः । मित्रावरुणयोर्जज्ञे उर्वश्यां प्रपितामहः ।। ९-१३-६ ।।

    After saying this, Mahārāja Nimi, who was expert in the science of spiritual knowledge, gave up his body. Vasiṣṭha, the great-grandfather, gave up his body also, but through the semen discharged by Mitra and Varuṇa when they saw Urvaśī, he was born again. ।। 9-13-6 ।।

    गन्धवस्तुषु तद्देहं निधाय मुनिसत्तमाः । समाप्ते सत्रयागेऽथ देवानूचुः समागतान् ।। ९-१३-७ ।।

    During the performance of the yajña, the body relinquished by Mahārāja Nimi was preserved in fragrant substances, and at the end of the Satra-yāga the great saints and brāhmaṇas made the following request to all the demigods assembled there. ।। 9-13-7 ।।

  3. 8

    “If you are satisfied with this sacrifice and if you are actually able to do so, kindly bring Mahārāja Nimi back to life in this body.” The demigods said yes to this request by the sages, but Mahārāja Nimi said, “Please do not imprison me again in a material body.” ।। 9-13-8 ।।

    यस्य योगं न वाञ्छन्ति वियोगभयकातराः । भजन्ति चरणाम्भोजं मुनयो हरिमेधसः ।। ९-१३-९ ।।

    Mahārāja Nimi continued: Māyāvādīs generally want freedom from accepting a material body because they fear having to give it up again. But devotees whose intelligence is always filled with the service of the Lord are unafraid. Indeed, they take advantage of the body to render transcendental loving service. ।। 9-13-9 ।।

  5. 10

    देहं नावरुरुत्सेऽहं दुःखशोकभयावहम् । सर्वत्रास्य यतो मृत्युर्मत्स्यानामुदके यथा ।। ९-१३-१० ।।

    I do not wish to accept a material body, for such a body is the source of all distress, lamentation and fear, everywhere in the universe, just as it is for a fish in the water, which lives always in anxiety because of fear of death. ।। 9-13-10 ।।
