Verse 3.9.58

सस्पन्दे समुदेतीव निःस्पन्दान्तर्गते न च ।
इयं यस्मिञ्जगल्लक्ष्मीरलात इव चक्रता ॥ ५८ ॥

saspande samudetīva niḥspandāntargate na ca |
iyaṃ yasmiñjagallakṣmīralāta iva cakratā || 58 ||

It is his pulsation that vibrates throughout the universe, and it is his inertia that stops the course of the whole; it is on that pivot that the world has its revolution, just as the turning round of a fire brand describes a circle.
