Verse 7.84.4

स्पन्देन लक्ष्यते वायुर्वह्निरौष्ण्येन लक्ष्यते ।
चिन्मात्रममलं शान्तं शिव इत्यभिधीयते ॥ ४ ॥

spandena lakṣyate vāyurvahnirauṣṇyena lakṣyate |
cinmātramamalaṃ śāntaṃ śiva ityabhidhīyate || 4 ||

As the wind is invisible even in its act of vacillations, and the heat is unseen even in its act of burning; so the intellect is imperceptible notwithstanding its acting, and is therefore called Siva—the calm and quiet.
