ब्रह्म सर्वगतं यस्माद्यथा यत्र यदोदितम् ।
भवत्याशु तथा तत्र स्वप्नशक्त्यैव पश्यति ॥ ४२ ॥

brahma sarvagataṃ yasmādyathā yatra yadoditam |
bhavatyāśu tathā tatra svapnaśaktyaiva paśyati || 42 ||

As the spirit of Brahma is all pervasive, and manifests itself in various ways in all places; it is beheld in different lights, according to the varying fancies (vikshepa sakti); or tendencies (vasana sakti) of men, like the ever-changeful scenes appearing to us in our visions and dreams.
