Verse 3.52.13

भ्रमो दृश्यमसत्तस्य द्रष्टृदृश्यदशा कुतः ।
द्रष्टृदृश्यक्रमाभावादद्वयं सहजं हि तत् ॥ १३ ॥

bhramo dṛśyamasattasya draṣṭṛdṛśyadaśā kutaḥ |
draṣṭṛdṛśyakramābhāvādadvayaṃ sahajaṃ hi tat || 13 ||

Error consists in taking the unreal for the real, and in thinking the viewer and the view or the subjective and objective as different from each other. It is the removal of the distinction of the subjective and objective, that leads us to the knowledge of unity.
