Verse 7.31.9

जगत्संकल्पमात्रात्म तत्र तेऽर्थयुतं क्षणात् ।
शाम्यत्यशेषेणेत्येव निर्णयः सर्गविभ्रमे ॥ ९ ॥

jagatsaṃkalpamātrātma tatra te'rthayutaṃ kṣaṇāt |
śāmyatyaśeṣeṇetyeva nirṇayaḥ sargavibhrame || 9 ||

The world is the creation of thy fancy as thou wishest it to be, and there are the peculiar duties attached to thy station in all thy wanderings through life; but all these cease at once at the moment (of your divine meditation), and this is the conclusion arrived at.
