It appears on a grain of rice in such a way that it does not separate from it even after the rice is pounded by a skilled person.

It may be stated here in reply that the word but in the above verse has been used to show that a special way exists of separating the kaficukas veils covering the true nature of the Self, but no ordinary way exists for accomplishing this.

Determinate cognition niicaya which is the function of the intellect buddhi is the experience of this is like this; samkalpa volition which is the function of the mind manas is thinking; and the false conception of one’s Self abhimSna which is the function of the ego ahamkSra is the experience of mineness. All these are called the intellect, the mind, and egoism respectively. These, the triad of the internal senses, are the products of the gunas when held in the relationship of predominance and subordination.
