Verse 7.32.15

वायौ द्वन्द्वमिवात्रेदं जगदादि च भासते ।
कोऽहं कथमिदं चेति विचारेणैव शाम्यति ॥ १५ ॥

vāyau dvandvamivātredaṃ jagadādi ca bhāsate |
ko'haṃ kathamidaṃ ceti vicāreṇaiva śāmyati || 15 ||

The world appears as a duality or something distinct from the unity of God, just as the motion of the wind seems to be something else beside the wind itself, or the breathing as another thing than the breath; but this fallacy of dualism will disappear upon reflection of “how I or any thing else could be something of itself”
