Verse 7.22.56

भावज्ञप्तिर्हि निर्मूला भावितापि न विद्यते ।
सलिलं मृगतृष्णेव न ददाति भवाङ्कुरम् ॥ ५६ ॥

bhāvajñaptirhi nirmūlā bhāvitāpi na vidyate |
salilaṃ mṛgatṛṣṇeva na dadāti bhavāṅkuram || 56 ||

The knowledge of existence (of the world), is without its foundation; and though it is thought to be existent, it is not found to be so in reality; it is as the water in the mirage, which does not grow the germ of the world.
