Verse 7.173.9

चित एव यथा स्वप्ने भवेत्काष्ठोपलादिता ।
चिदाकाशस्य सर्गादौ तथैवावयवादिता ॥ ९ ॥

cita eva yathā svapne bhavetkāṣṭhopalāditā |
cidākāśasya sargādau tathaivāvayavāditā || 9 ||

As the conscious soul becomes unconscious, as a stone or block of wood in its sleep; so the universal soul becomes inert, before creation and after its dissolution. And again as the sleeping soul, sees the train of dreams rising out of it, so the tranquil spirit of God, beholds the lustre of creation issuing out of it.
