मम विश्रान्तिमेष्यन्ति शैलस्थाण्वचलस्थितेः ॥ ३६ ॥

kadā niḥśaṅkamurasi dhyānadhīradhiyaḥ khagāḥ |
mama viśrāntimeṣyanti śailasthāṇvacalasthiteḥ || 36 ||

And when will the birds of the air rest fearlessly on my bosom, as they do on the tops of fixed rocks, upon finding me sitting transfixed in my meditation, and as immovable as a rock.
