पातालं ब्रह्मलोकं वा चित्तत्सुकृतशालिनी ।
चित्तांशस्पन्दमात्रेण कृत्वा कृत्वेव संस्थिता ॥ १७ ॥

pātālaṃ brahmalokaṃ vā cittatsukṛtaśālinī |
cittāṃśaspandamātreṇa kṛtvā kṛtveva saṃsthitā || 17 ||

The godly intellect frames the celestial and infernal regions in our dreams, by the slight vibration of the mind at its pleasure; and then takes a delight in rambling over and dwelling in them.
