जगच्चिद्व्योमकचनमात्रमेवेति भाविते ।
तत्कथं वेदनं व्योम्ना बोधः कस्य कुतो भवेत् ॥ १० ॥

jagaccidvyomakacanamātrameveti bhāvite |
tatkathaṃ vedanaṃ vyomnā bodhaḥ kasya kuto bhavet || 10 ||

Knowing the universe as the splendours of the intellectual vacuum (i.e. in the sphere of the vacuous intellect); you cannot suppose the knowledge of anything, or the feeling of any pleasure or pain, ever to attach or stick to an empty nothing.
