यं किंचिद् अर्थो मनसा च प्रार्थितः सर्वो स ऋद्ध्येय यथामनो च ॥ ४० ॥

madhuṃ kṛtaṃ satpuruṣapraśastaṃ sarvehi puṣpehi sukhāvahāya |
yaṃ kiṃcid artho manasā ca prārthitaḥ sarvo sa ṛddhyeya yathāmano ca || 40 ||

The good and true man esteems the honey gathered from all kinds of flowers as bringing great blessing. Whatever man desires, so he desire it with his mind, it all shall turn out well for him, even as he wishes. (40)
