Verse 7.31.4

न नाशो नास्ति नानर्थो न जन्ममरणे न खम् ।
न शून्यता न नानास्ति सर्वं ब्रह्मैव नैव च ॥ ४ ॥

na nāśo nāsti nānartho na janmamaraṇe na kham |
na śūnyatā na nānāsti sarvaṃ brahmaiva naiva ca || 4 ||

It has no dissolution or decay, nor it has its birth or death; it is neither vacuity nor solidity, it is neither extension nor tenuity, but it is all and the Supreme one and nothing in particular.
