Verse 7.209.31

यदि स्यात्सुस्थिरं किंचिद्वस्तु तद्दृश्यको भवेत् ।
न्याय एषोऽखिलः किंतु संवित्त्वात्स्वस्वकं स्थितः ॥ ३१ ॥

yadi syātsusthiraṃ kiṃcidvastu taddṛśyako bhavet |
nyāya eṣo'khilaḥ kiṃtu saṃvittvātsvasvakaṃ sthitaḥ || 31 ||

Should there be anything, which may be said to be permanent in this world, it must be ever present in the view of its viewer; let then any man say upon this criterion, which he does not lose the sight of all other things before his eye sight, except the ideas of things in his mind, which are ever present in his knowledge, and never lost sight of in his consciousness.
