Striking down in sleep what is bodily,
Sleepless, he looks down upon the sleeping senses.
Having taken to himself light, he has returned to his own place:
That Golden Person, the Lone Wild Gander.
Guarding with his breath his low nest,
Out of that nest, the Immortal goes forth.
He goes wherever he pleases, that Immortal,
The Golden Person, the Unique Wild Gander.
verse from the Mandukya Upanishad
