Verse 6.10.35

नच संलक्ष्यते दीपे तमसो रूपनिश्चयः ।
उदेति केवलं ध्वान्तध्वंसो विमलमूर्तिमान् ॥ ३५ ॥

naca saṃlakṣyate dīpe tamaso rūpaniścayaḥ |
udeti kevalaṃ dhvāntadhvaṃso vimalamūrtimān || 35 ||

As one pursuing after darkness sees a lighted torch in his hand, sees but a blaze of light before, and no shadow of darkness about him;so the inquirer after truth perceives the light of truth, shining to his face and no vestige of untruth left behind him.
