Mandukya Upanishad :

Chapter-1. Agama Prakarana ( The Scriptural Treatise )

Sri Gaudapada's glossary begins :

Karika Slokam-s 1 to 9.

Slokam-2.

"Daksinaksjasahi-mukhe visvo manasy-antastu taijasah,
akase ca hrdi prajnas-tridha dehe vyavasthitah."

visvah - visva;
antah manasi - ( is ) within the mind;
tu - whereas;
taijasah - taijasa;
akase hrdi - ( is in the ) space within the heart;
ca prajnah - and prajna;
tridha - in three different ways;
dehe - in the body;
