Verse 4.61.21

एकस्मिन्नेव सततं स्थिते सन्मात्रवस्तुनि ।
जातोऽयमयमुन्नष्ट इति तेषां तवेह धीः ॥ २१ ॥

ekasminneva satataṃ sthite sanmātravastuni |
jāto'yamayamunnaṣṭa iti teṣāṃ taveha dhīḥ || 21 ||

There being but one and only one real substance in existence, it is a palpable error of your ignorant folks to say, "this one exists, and the other perishes or vanishes away"
