yac cāpy utkrāmatīśvaraḥ
gṛhītvaitāni saṁyāti
vāyur gandhān ivāśayāt

Whatever body is entered into, or whatever body is departed from, the lord of the senses (the soul) always takes them (the senses) along with him, as also the essences of the elements (or rudimental elementary essences); like the wind abstracting from their seats, the flowers, sandal (chandana), musk etc., their scents along with their fine dust, and carrying them elsewhere.

What these senses are, is explained :—
