Verse 6.2.52

चिदन्तरस्ति त्रिजगन्मरिचे तीक्ष्णता यथा ।
नातश्चिज्जगती भिन्ने तस्मात्सदसती मुधा ॥ ५२ ॥

cidantarasti trijaganmarice tīkṣṇatā yathā |
nātaścijjagatī bhinne tasmātsadasatī mudhā || 52 ||

The Divine Intellect contains the three worlds, as the pepper has its pungency within itself. Therefore the triple world is not a distinct thing from Brahma, and its existence and inexistence (i.e., its creation and dissolution), are mere fictions of human mind.
