Verse 2.3.9

आतिवाहिकनाम्नान्तः स्वहृद्येव जगत्त्रयम् ।
व्योम्नि चित्तशरीरेण व्योमात्मानुभवत्यजः ॥ ९ ॥

ātivāhikanāmnāntaḥ svahṛdyeva jagattrayam |
vyomni cittaśarīreṇa vyomātmānubhavatyajaḥ || 9 ||

The mind is called to be ever-fluctuating, and gives rise to (all things in) the three worlds in itself. It resides in vacuity in the form of the heart, and the increate (God) also residing in the vacuous soul.
