Verse 3.52.9

स्वात्मैव कचति व्यर्थो न कचत्येव वा क्वचित् ।
तत्पदं परमं विद्धि नाशोत्पादविवर्जितम् ॥ ९ ॥

svātmaiva kacati vyartho na kacatyeva vā kvacit |
tatpadaṃ paramaṃ viddhi nāśotpādavivarjitam || 9 ||

It is the soul which presents the images of things, and nothing external which is wholly unreal can cast its reflection on the soul. Therefore know thy soul as the true essence which is increate and immortal, and the source of all its creations within itself. Note:—The subjective is the cause of the objective and not this of that.
