Verse 5.51.5

उद्दालकवदालूनं विशीर्णं भूतपञ्चकम् ।
कृत्वा कृत्वा धिया धीरधीरयान्तर्विचारय ॥ ५ ॥

uddālakavadālūnaṃ viśīrṇaṃ bhūtapañcakam |
kṛtvā kṛtvā dhiyā dhīradhīrayāntarvicāraya || 5 ||

Do you, like the sage Uddalaka, shake off your knowledge of quintuple materiality as the cause of all creation, and accustom yourself to think deeper, and on the prime cause of causes by your patient inquiry and reasoning.
