Verse 6.51.69

तदा ग्राह्यग्रहणधीर्मृगतृष्णेव सोदया ।
नेह संत्यज्यते किंचिन्नेह किंचिन्न गृह्यते ॥ ६९ ॥

tadā grāhyagrahaṇadhīrmṛgatṛṣṇeva sodayā |
neha saṃtyajyate kiṃcinneha kiṃcinna gṛhyate || 69 ||

Hence the belief of the receiver, received and reception, are as false as the water in the mirage; and there is nothing that we can shun or lay hold upon as desirable or disgusting, when they are all the same in the sight of God.
