Verse 4

O Arunachala! Having given up external objects
and having meditated upon You within
by a mind restrained by the restrained breath,
the yogi sees the light. They are exalted in You

O Arunesa who shine! Having given up external objects
and having meditated upon You in the heart
by a mind which stands when restraining the breath,
the yogi sees the light. He attains exaltation in You. Know this.

Explanatory paraphrase: O self-shining Arunesa! Having given up attending to external (second and third person) objects and having meditated upon You (the real Self who shine as ‘I’) in the heart with a mind which has become still by restraining the breath, the yogi sees the light of Self-knowledge and attains greatness in You (by thus uniting with You, the embodiment of all greatness). Know this.
