Verse 6.51.71

अब्धिर्यथा जलमपास्तसमस्तभेदः खादच्छमेव सकलं द्रवमेकशुद्धम् ।
सर्वं तथेदमपहस्तितभेदजातमाद्यं परं पदमनामयमेव बुद्धम् ॥ ७१ ॥

abdhiryathā jalamapāstasamastabhedaḥ khādacchameva sakalaṃ dravamekaśuddham |
sarvaṃ tathedamapahastitabhedajātamādyaṃ paraṃ padamanāmayameva buddham || 71 ||

As the ocean is an even expanse of water, after the subsidence of all its various waves and billows, and shows itself as clear as sky with its pure watery expanse to view; so the whole universe appears as the reflection of one glorious and ever lasting Deity, after we lose sight of the diversities that are presented to our superficial view.
