Verse 7.96.1

श्रीवसिष्ठ उवाच ।
पाषाणाख्यानमेतत्ते कथितं कार्यकोविद ।
अनयेमाः स्फुरद्दृष्ट्या सृष्टयो नभसि स्थिताः ॥ १ ॥

śrīvasiṣṭha uvāca |
pāṣāṇākhyānametatte kathitaṃ kāryakovida |
anayemāḥ sphuraddṛṣṭyā sṛṣṭayo nabhasi sthitāḥ || 1 ||

Vasishtha resumed:—O intelligent Rama! I have now related to you at length the narrative of the stone, which shows you plainly how all these created things, are situated in the vacuity of the Divine Intellect.
