Verse 7.209.18

इदमप्रतिघारम्भं भ्रान्तिमात्रं जगत्त्रयम् ।
न संभवति को नाम भ्रान्तौ भ्रान्तिविपर्ययः ॥ १८ ॥

idamapratighārambhaṃ bhrāntimātraṃ jagattrayam |
na saṃbhavati ko nāma bhrāntau bhrāntiviparyayaḥ || 18 ||

The sights of all the three worlds, are equally fallacious both in their tangible and intangible forms; as the vision of one object in a dream, is as false as another in their visionary nature.
