Verse 3.95.5

काचिद्वा कलना यावन्न नीता राघव प्रथाम् ।
उपदेश्योपदेशश्रीस्तावल्लोके न शोभते ॥ ५ ॥

kācidvā kalanā yāvanna nītā rāghava prathām |
upadeśyopadeśaśrīstāvalloke na śobhate || 5 ||

It is a mere fiction of speech to speak of the world as creation or production, because it is difficult to explain the subject and object of the lecture, without the use of such fictitious language.
