अनन्यथावादिन लोकनायका एकं इदं यानु द्वितीयु नास्ति ॥ ७० ॥

vyapanehi kāṅkṣāṃ tatha saṃśayaṃ ca yeṣāṃ ca keṣāṃ ciha kāṅkṣa vidyate |
ananyathāvādina lokanāyakā ekaṃ idaṃ yānu dvitīyu nāsti || 70 ||

Remove all doubt and uncertainty; and should there be any who feel doubts, (let them know that) the Lords of the world speak the truth; this is the only vehicle, a second there is not.
