Verse 18.26

इदं समाप्तं व्यसनं महद्भयं इतो न भोति अग्रे अस्य संभवो ।
तस्यावरोधनम् अधो प्रवर्तते निर्वाति वातान स्वरो व पाकः ॥ २६ ॥

idaṃ samāptaṃ vyasanaṃ mahadbhayaṃ ito na bhoti agre asya saṃbhavo |
tasyāvarodhanam adho pravartate nirvāti vātāna svaro va pākaḥ || 26 ||

This terrible misery is now at an end; it will arise no more. The cessation of it is complete. The result of deeds fades away like the sighing of the wind. (26)
