Verse 5.91.14

द्वे बीजे चित्तवृक्षस्य वृत्तिव्रततिधारिणः ।
एकं प्राणपरिस्पन्दो द्वितीयं दृढभावना ॥ १४ ॥

dve bīje cittavṛkṣasya vṛttivratatidhāriṇaḥ |
ekaṃ prāṇaparispando dvitīyaṃ dṛḍhabhāvanā || 14 ||

There are two kinds of seeds again which give rise to the arbor of the mind, which is entwined by the creepers of its faculties; one kind of these is the breathing of the vital breath, and the other is thinking or the train of its thoughts.
