सर्वात्मनि चिदाभासे तदेवाश्वनुभूयते ।
संवेद्यते यदेवान्तरसत्यं वस्त्ववस्तु वा ॥ १ ॥

śrīvasiṣṭha uvāca |
sarvātmani cidābhāse tadevāśvanubhūyate |
saṃvedyate yadevāntarasatyaṃ vastvavastu vā || 1 ||

Vasishtha said:—He who has devoted his whole soul to the contemplation of the Intellect, and feels the same stirring within himself, and knows in his mind the vanity and unreality of all worldly things.
