Verse 7.96.9

चिदेव शैलवद्भाति यथा स्वप्ने निरामया ।
तथा ब्रह्म निराकारं सर्गवद्भाति नेतरत् ॥ ९ ॥

cideva śailavadbhāti yathā svapne nirāmayā |
tathā brahma nirākāraṃ sargavadbhāti netarat || 9 ||

As the mind shows itself, in the form of the formless mountain in its dream; so the formless Brahma, manifests itself as the formal world, which is nothing in reality.
