तमस्तेजोन्तिके लेभे कदाचिच्छाश्वतीं स्थितिम् ॥ ४४ ॥

bāhyānābhyantarānsparśāṃstyaktvā nidrāṃ ca tanmanaḥ |
tamastejontike lebhe kadācicchāśvatīṃ sthitim || 44 ||

Thus turning by turns from the inner to the outer world, and then from this to that again; his mind found its rest in the intermediate space, lying between the light of the one and darkness of the other.
