Sanskrit text, Unicode transliteration and English translation by Ganganath Jha:

तासां हि बाह्यरूपत्वं कल्पितं तन्न वास्तवम् ।
भेदाभेदौ च तत्त्वेन वस्तुन्येव व्यवस्थितौ ॥ १०४७ ॥

tāsāṃ hi bāhyarūpatvaṃ kalpitaṃ tanna vāstavam |
bhedābhedau ca tattvena vastunyeva vyavasthitau || 1047 ||

The externality that is attributed to these exclusions is only assumed (imaginary), not real. in reality, difference and non-difference subsist only in real things.—(1047)


Kamalaśīla’s commentary (tattvasaṃgrahapañjikā):

The following Text shows that the said exclusions appear as distinct things, only on account of the said assumption,—not in reality:—[see verse 1047 above]

Question:—“Why is it not real?”

Answer:—‘In reality, etc. etc.’.—(1047)
