Verse 7.52.28

तन्न वायुर्न चाकाशं न बुद्ध्यादि न शून्यकम् ।
न किंचिदपि सर्वात्म किमप्यन्यत्परं नभः ॥ २८ ॥

tanna vāyurna cākāśaṃ na buddhyādi na śūnyakam |
na kiṃcidapi sarvātma kimapyanyatparaṃ nabhaḥ || 28 ||

It is not the air nor the wind, nor is it the understanding nor any of its faculties nor a void or nullity also; it is nothing and yet the source of everything, and what can it be but the transcendent vacuum.
