Chapter 15 -- Verse 3-4

Verse: 
na rūpamasyeha tathopalabhyate nānto na cādirna ca sampratiṣṭhā | 
aśvatthamenaṃ suvirūḍhamūlamasaṅgaśastreṇa dṛḍhena chittvā || 
tataḥ padaṃ tatparimārgitavyaṃ yasmingatā na nivartanti bhūyaḥ |
tameva cādyaṃ puruṣaṃ prapadye yataḥ pravṛttiḥ prasṛtā purāṇī ||

न रूपमस्येह तथोपलभ्यते नान्तो न चादिर्न च सम्प्रतिष्ठा । 

अश्वत्थमेनं सुविरूढमूलमसङ्गशस्त्रेण दृढेन छित्त्वा ॥
ततः पदं तत्परिमार्गितव्यं यस्मिन्गता न निवर्तन्ति भूयः । 
तमेव चाद्यं पुरुषं प्रपद्ये यतः प्रवृत्तिः प्रसृता पुराणी ॥

Translation: Its form is not perceived here as such, neither its end, nor its origin, nor its foundation, nor its resting-place; having cut asunder this firm-rooted ASHWATTHA -tree with the strong axe of non-attachment, then that Goal should be sought after, where having gone, none returns again. I seek refuge in that 'primeval PURUSHA' from which streamed forth, from time immemorial, all activity (or energy).
