SB 11.26.18
kvāyaṁ malīmasaḥ kāyo
daurgandhyādy-ātmako ’śuciḥ
kva guṇāḥ saumanasyādyā
hy adhyāso ’vidyayā kṛtaḥ

What is this polluted body anyway — so filthy and full of bad odors? I was attracted by the fragrance and beauty of a woman’s body, but what are those so-called attractive features? They are simply a false covering created by illusion.

Purūravā now understands that although he was madly attracted to the fragrant, shapely body of Urvaśī, in fact that body was a sack of stool, gas, bile, mucus, hairs and other repugnant elements. In other words, Purūravā is now becoming sane.
