Verse 5.51.7

श्रीवसिष्ठ उवाच ।
श्रृणु राम यथापूर्वं भूतवृन्दविचारणात् ।
उद्दालकेन संप्राप्ता परमा दृष्टिरक्षता ॥ ७ ॥

śrīvasiṣṭha uvāca |
śrṛṇu rāma yathāpūrvaṃ bhūtavṛndavicāraṇāt |
uddālakena saṃprāptā paramā dṛṣṭirakṣatā || 7 ||

Vasishtha replied:—Learn Rama, how the sage Uddalaka of old, rose higher from his investigation of quintuple matter to his inquiry into their cause, and the manner in which that transcendent light dawned upon his mind.
