Verse 5.24.53

परदृष्टौ वितृष्णत्वं तृष्णाभावे च दृक्परा ।
एते मिथः स्थिते दृष्टी तेजोदीपदशे यथा ॥ ५३ ॥

paradṛṣṭau vitṛṣṇatvaṃ tṛṣṇābhāve ca dṛkparā |
ete mithaḥ sthite dṛṣṭī tejodīpadaśe yathā || 53 ||

The sight of the Spirit produces the want of desires, and the absence of these shows the light of the spirit to its sight; therefore they are related to each other like the wick and oil of the lamp, in producing the light, and dispelling the darkness of the night.
