यदिदं किंचिदाभोगि जागतं दृश्यतां गतम् ।
रूपं तच्चेतसः स्फारं घटादित्वं मृदो यथा ॥ १३ ॥

yadidaṃ kiṃcidābhogi jāgataṃ dṛśyatāṃ gatam |
rūpaṃ taccetasaḥ sphāraṃ ghaṭāditvaṃ mṛdo yathā || 13 ||

All these forms and figures, which appear to our view in these worlds, are the formations of the mind, as the pots and toys are the works of clay.
