यथा वा —

क्षिपत ननु सतीर्थाश् चेष्टतां प्राण-हंसः ॥३.२.११३॥

Another example:
“O students! Our revered guru has dried up like a tīrtha devoid of its sacred water, which is its very life. This has happened because of the heat of separation on not seeing the feet of the Lord. Pour into that tīrtha the nectar of the Lord’s name by means of the canal of his ear, and then the swan of his life will be revived.”
