Verse 3.52.7

शवगेहजगत्कुक्षाविदं गेहजगत्स्थितम् ।
एवमेष महारम्भो जगत्त्रयमयो भ्रमः ॥ ७ ॥

śavagehajagatkukṣāvidaṃ gehajagatsthitam |
evameṣa mahārambho jagattrayamayo bhramaḥ || 7 ||

As the departed soul views the vision of the past world within its narrow tomb; so is the appearance of all worldly accidents unreal in their nature. Gloss:—The apparitions appearing before the souls of the dead lying in their tombs, are as false as the appearances presenting themselves before the living souls in their tomb of this world. The souls of the living and the dead are both alike in their nature, and both susceptible of the like dreams and visions.
