Verse 5.48.52

रूपालोकमनस्कारतत्ताकालक्रियात्मकम् ।
कुम्भकारो घटमिव चेतो हन्ति करोति च ॥ ५२ ॥

rūpālokamanaskāratattākālakriyātmakam |
kumbhakāro ghaṭamiva ceto hanti karoti ca || 52 ||

The sight of things present, and the thoughts of the absent past and unseen future, are all but acts of the mind, as the making and unmaking of pots, are both of them the doings of the pot maker.
