Verse 4.20.3

भावाभावग्रहोत्सर्गदृशश्चेतनकल्पिताः ।
नासत्या नापि सत्यास्ता मनश्चापलकारिताः ॥ ३ ॥

bhāvābhāvagrahotsargadṛśaścetanakalpitāḥ |
nāsatyā nāpi satyāstā manaścāpalakāritāḥ || 3 ||

Therefore the convictions of being or not being, and of receiving or rejecting of a thing, depend upon the imagination of the mind; they are neither true nor untrue, but are mere fluctuations of the mind.
