मिथ्यावभासे संकल्पनगरे कैव नष्टता ।
तथा जगदहंत्वादौ नाशो नासति विद्यते ॥ ६ ॥

mithyāvabhāse saṃkalpanagare kaiva naṣṭatā |
tathā jagadahaṃtvādau nāśo nāsati vidyate || 6 ||

Nothing is lost at the loss of an imaginary city, which is altogether a falsity; so nothing is destroyed by the destruction of our egoism and this unreal world.
