Verse 7.18.18

कुम्भे देशान्तरं नीते यथान्तर्व्योन्नि नान्यता ।
स्पन्दनादिमये चित्ते तथैव त्रिजगद्भ्रमे ॥ १८ ॥

kumbhe deśāntaraṃ nīte yathāntarvyonni nānyatā |
spandanādimaye citte tathaiva trijagadbhrame || 18 ||

Though the mind is ever fickle, changeable and forgetful in its nature; yet it never loses the false idea of the world which is inherent in it, as a pot removed to any place and placed in any state, never gets rid of its inner vacuity.
