    Dasakam: 095 -- Slokam: 02

    सत्त्वोन्मेषात् कदाचित् खलु विषयरसे दोषबोधेऽपि भूमन्
    भूयोऽप्येषु प्रवृत्तिस्सतमसि रजसि प्रोद्धते दुर्निवारा ।
    चित्तं तावद्गुणाश्च ग्रथितमिह मिथस्तानि सर्वाणि रोद्धुं
    तुर्ये त्वय्येकभक्तिश्शरणमिति भवान् हंसरूपी न्यगादीत् ॥२॥

To control all these, devotion in Thy in the "fourth state" (beyond the three states of wakefulness, dream and deep slumber) which is identical with Thee. This indeed was the advice vouchsafed by Thee to Sages, Sanaka and his brothers, assuming the form of a Swan, (which signifies whiteness, purity and wisdom).
