Verse 7.29.43

श्रीवसिष्ठ उवाच ।
एवं स्थिते राघव हे यथाभूतमिदं श्रृणु ।
कस्त्वं कोऽहं जगद्वा किमिति तत्त्वविदां वर ॥ ४३ ॥

śrīvasiṣṭha uvāca |
evaṃ sthite rāghava he yathābhūtamidaṃ śrṛṇu |
kastvaṃ ko'haṃ jagadvā kimiti tattvavidāṃ vara || 43 ||

Vasishtha replied:—It being so (that there no determinate person expressed by the word egoism); hear me to tell you now, O Rama, that art the best among the enquirers of truth, what thou art and what am I in truth, and what is world in reality.
