Verse 7.204.5

श्रीराम उवाच ।
संपन्नेयं कथं भूमिः संपन्ना गिरयः कथम् ।
कथं संपन्नमम्भश्च संपन्ना उपलाः कथम् ॥ ५ ॥

śrīrāma uvāca |
saṃpanneyaṃ kathaṃ bhūmiḥ saṃpannā girayaḥ katham |
kathaṃ saṃpannamambhaśca saṃpannā upalāḥ katham || 5 ||

Rama rejoined:—If all things are formless amidst the formless void of the universe, as in empty vacuity of the intellect; then tell me sir, whence arise these endless shapes and forms, as those [of] earth, water, fire and those of these hills, rocks and pebbles?
