Verse 7.31.21

यस्य चैष भ्रमः सोऽसन्प्रेक्षयासन्न लक्ष्यते ।
मृगतृष्णाम्बुवत्तेन संसारः कस्य कः कुतः ॥ २१ ॥

yasya caiṣa bhramaḥ so'sanprekṣayāsanna lakṣyate |
mṛgatṛṣṇāmbuvattena saṃsāraḥ kasya kaḥ kutaḥ || 21 ||

But who has fallen into the error of taking the visibles for true, his sight of the unreal prevents his coming to the view of the true reality; and he finds at the end, that the visible world is but a mirage, and is never faithful to any body at any place.
