या निशा सर्वभूतानां तस्यां जागर्ति संयमी ।
यस्यां जाग्रति भूतानि सा निशा पश्यतो मुनेः ।।

yā niśā sarvabhūtānāṃ tasyāṃ jāgarti saṃyamī ।
yasyāṃ jāgrati bhūtāni sā niśā paśyato muneḥ ।।
या - that prajna detailed previously, सर्वभूतानां - for all creatures, निशा - night (non-appearing), तस्यां - that (Atma), संयमी - One who has done subjugated indriya-s, जागर्ति - is wide awake (always appearing),
यस्यां - in those things (external), भूतानि - all creatures, जाग्रति - is awake (appears), सा - that prajna, पश्यत: - the sleepless, मुनेः - Atma sadhaka, निशा - night (non-appearing)
A yogi who always meditates on Atma never sees any other object. For others, they see everything except Atma

A yogi sees things enveloped by night on which others are wide awake. The vice-versa is also true. What the yogi is wide awake by is enveloped by night for others
A shloka beautifully describes this..

आत्मा नहि स्फुरति सर्वशरीर भाजां
तेषां निशा भवति सा खलु तत्र योगि |
जागर्ति जाग्रति च ते व्यवहारजाते
तन्नस्फुरद्युरुदीय​​: क्षणतास्य साधु ||
Another analogy would be
काक उलूक निशेवायं संसार​: अज्ञ आत्मवेदिनो:

That is, a crow remains awake in the day & sleeps through the night. An owl does the exact opposite.

What is day for the crow is night for the owl & vice-versa. The same is applicable for a Yogi & others
Same as (V)
Same as (V)
