yeṣāṃ ca vidyate sargaḥ svapnapuṃsāmivāsatām |
sa sargaḥ puruṣāste ca mṛgatṛṣṇāmbuvīcivat || 11 ||

The unholy souls that view the creation, appearing before them like the dreams of sleeping men; are called sleeping souls, which behold the world rising before them, like the waving waters in a mirage.
