निशायामल्पवीर्यात्मा पिशाचेनेव जङ्गले ।
स्वयमेव त्वथेदानीं क्रियाशक्त्या स्वयैव हि ॥ ५५ ॥

niśāyāmalpavīryātmā piśāceneva jaṅgale |
svayameva tvathedānīṃ kriyāśaktyā svayaiva hi || 55 ||

The animal soul is powerless at night, as if it were caught in the clutches of a demon in the forest; so I feel it now to be deprived of its power and action, while I am in this state of my meditation.
