Verse 5.70.10

जाग्रत्येव सुषुप्तस्थो जीवो भवति राघव ।
अस्यां दृशि गतोऽद्वन्द्वो नित्यानस्तमयोदयः ॥ १० ॥

jāgratyeva suṣuptastho jīvo bhavati rāghava |
asyāṃ dṛśi gato'dvandvo nityānastamayodayaḥ || 10 ||

The waking soul may deem itself to be in sound sleep, by its sleeping over (or insensibility of) the outer world; as it may likewise deem itself to be ever awake and never asleep, by its sight of the unfading light of the soul; and by preservation of its equanimity and equality in all circumstances, and its want of duality and differentiation of the objects of its love and hatred.
