Verse 4.44.20

प्राकाश्यममलालोकमालोकस्तेन वर्धते ।
मनस्तावद्गुणगतं रसतन्मात्रवेदनम् ॥ २० ॥

prākāśyamamalālokamālokastena vardhate |
manastāvadguṇagataṃ rasatanmātravedanam || 20 ||

The condensation of the elements of air and wind together, produced the idea of light which is the cause of sight, and which has the colours and figures for its objects; and thus the mind being actuated by its triple thoughts of air, wind and light, produced the property of fire.
