Verse 7.62.40

स्वप्नस्य विद्यते द्रष्टा साकारो युष्मदादिकः ।
द्रष्टा तु सर्गस्वप्नस्य चिद्व्योमैवामलं स्वतः ॥ ४० ॥

svapnasya vidyate draṣṭā sākāro yuṣmadādikaḥ |
draṣṭā tu sargasvapnasya cidvyomaivāmalaṃ svataḥ || 40 ||

The nightly dream needs a dreamer, and a living person also in order to see the same, such as I, thou, he or any body else; but not so the day dream of the world, which is displayed in the vacuity of the clear intellect itself.
