Verse 3.15.5

जगद्भानं न भातीदं ब्रह्मणो व्यतिरेकतः ।
जालसूर्यांशुजालं तु व्यतिरेकानुभूतिदम् ॥ ५ ॥

jagadbhānaṃ na bhātīdaṃ brahmaṇo vyatirekataḥ |
jālasūryāṃśujālaṃ tu vyatirekānubhūtidam || 5 ||

The fancied world is no more than a facsimile of the mind of its Maker, just as the sun-beams under the water, are but reflections of the light above; and no other than a negative notion.
