यथा स्तब्धः स्थितो वीचिरिव स्थलमिवास्थितः ।
पञ्चकेषु तथैतच्चिल्लोलरूपा जडान्विता ॥ ६१ ॥

yathā stabdhaḥ sthito vīciriva sthalamivāsthitaḥ |
pañcakeṣu tathaitaccillolarūpā jaḍānvitā || 61 ||

As the wave of the sea is seen to roll in one place, and to be dull and at a lull in another; so is this intellectual power in full force in some bodies, and quite quiescent in others.
