As the figments of a dream dissolve upon waking, so the confusion of Samsara fades away in enlightenment – Mahāyānaviṁśikā

“The object of knowledge in dream is not seen when one awakes. Similarly the world disappears to him who is awakened from the darkness of ignorance. The creation of illusion is nothing but illusion. When everything is compound there is nothing which can be regarded as a real thing. Such is the nature of all things. As the figments of a dream dissolve upon waking, so the confusion of Samsara fades away in enlightenment.”
– Mahāyānaviṁśikā
