जगद्भ्रमोऽयं दृश्योऽपि नास्त्येवेत्यनुभूयते ।
वर्णो व्योम्न इवाखेदाद्विचारेणामुनाऽनघ ॥ ५ ॥

jagadbhramo'yaṃ dṛśyo'pi nāstyevetyanubhūyate |
varṇo vyomna ivākhedādvicāreṇāmunā'nagha || 5 ||

The conception of this world is a mistake, and though we actually see it, it is never in existence. It appears in the same light, O sinless saint, as the variegated colours in the sky.
