Verse 3.52.17

सर्वं शून्यात्मविज्ञानं मेर्वादिगिरिजालकम् ।
नेदं कुड्यमयं किंचिद्यथा स्वप्ने महापुरम् ॥ १७ ॥

sarvaṃ śūnyātmavijñānaṃ mervādigirijālakam |
nedaṃ kuḍyamayaṃ kiṃcidyathā svapne mahāpuram || 17 ||

The knowledge of the mountain chains of Meru and others, is included under the knowledge in the vacuity of the soul; there is no substance or solidity in them as in a great city seen in a dream.
