शिष्य उवाच ।
किमिदं भाति भगवन्न विभाति च किं पुनः ।
कस्येदं वस्तुनो रूपं चिद्व्योम्नो वितताकृतेः ॥ १७ ॥

śiṣya uvāca |
kimidaṃ bhāti bhagavanna vibhāti ca kiṃ punaḥ |
kasyedaṃ vastuno rūpaṃ cidvyomno vitatākṛteḥ || 17 ||

The pupil rejoined:—If the world is a nullity as you say, then sir, be pleased to tell what is it that thus appears to and disappears from us by turns; and what is that vacuous intellect which presents this extensive view before us; as also how does the void present its reflection of the plenum and to what purpose.
