Verse 5.86.59

शरदीव घनः स्वैरं प्राप्तः कल्पान्तसर्गवत् ।
ओंकारान्ते स्वमननं प्रशाम्याम्यात्मनात्मनि ।
दग्धेन्धन इवार्चिष्मान्निःस्नेह इव दीपकः ॥ ५९ ॥

śaradīva ghanaḥ svairaṃ prāptaḥ kalpāntasargavat |
oṃkārānte svamananaṃ praśāmyāmyātmanātmani |
dagdhendhana ivārciṣmānniḥsneha iva dīpakaḥ || 59 ||

Let me be as silent as the dumb cloud in autumn, and as still as the creation, after the great deluge at the end of a Kalpa; let me remain thoughtless, as when the mind is concentrated in the dot of om or on, and when my soul rests in supreme soul. Let me be as cold as when the fire is reduced to ashes, and as extinct as the extinguished and oilless lamp.
