ॐ यज्जाग्रतो दूरमुदैति दैवं, तदु सुप्तस्य तथैवैति .
दूरंगमं ज्योतिषां ज्योतिरेकं, तन्मे मनः शिवसंकल्पमस्तु .

Om Yajjagrato Doormudaiti Daivam , Tadu Suptasya Tathaivaiti.
Doorangamam Jyotishaam Jyotirekam, Tanmay Mna Shiv-Sankalapamastu.

O God! The mind of man flees fast and far away in awakened state. It acts the same way during sleep as well.
It is the chief among all senses; such mind should be of pure thoughts.
