Verse 7.178.56

अजातमनिरुद्धं च सन्मात्रं ब्रह्म खात्मकम् ।
शान्तं सदसतोर्मध्यं चिद्भामात्रमिदं जगत् ॥ ५६ ॥

ajātamaniruddhaṃ ca sanmātraṃ brahma khātmakam |
śāntaṃ sadasatormadhyaṃ cidbhāmātramidaṃ jagat || 56 ||

The Lord is unborn and increate, and unconfined in his nature and purely vacuous in his essence; he is calm and quiescent, and is immanent in the interim of ens and nil (i.e. of existence and non-existence). This world therefore is no more than a reflection of the intellectual or its ideal pattern in Divine Mind.
