Verse 2.18.61

स्वप्नाभत्वं च जगतः श्रुते शास्त्रेऽवबोध्यते ।
शीघ्रं न पार्यते वक्तुं वाक्किल क्रमवर्तिनी ॥ ६१ ॥

svapnābhatvaṃ ca jagataḥ śrute śāstre'vabodhyate |
śīghraṃ na pāryate vaktuṃ vākkila kramavartinī || 61 ||

The resemblance of the world to a dream is found also in the Srutis or Vedanta. It is not to be explained in a word, but requires a continued course of lectures.
