Verse 7.51.2

श्रीवसिष्ठ उवाच ।
अकारणं महाबुद्धे न कार्यमुपलभ्यते ।
तज्जाग्रतः केवलस्य न कश्चिदिह संभवः ॥ २ ॥

śrīvasiṣṭha uvāca |
akāraṇaṃ mahābuddhe na kāryamupalabhyate |
tajjāgrataḥ kevalasya na kaścidiha saṃbhavaḥ || 2 ||

Vasishtha replied:—O highly intelligent Rama, there is no work to be found any where which is without its cause, therefore it is altogether impossible for any body to exist here, that is merely awake for nothing.
