Verse 4.13.7

अक्षीयमाणं हि मनो मोहायैव न सिद्धये ।
नीहार इव संछाद्य वेताल इव वल्गति ॥ ७ ॥

akṣīyamāṇaṃ hi mano mohāyaiva na siddhaye |
nīhāra iva saṃchādya vetāla iva valgati || 7 ||

Those who have not succeeded to dispel the errors of their minds, have darkened their understandings by a mist of ignorance; like the frosty sky of winter, and they find the phantoms of their error, dancing as demons before their eyes.
