यो विचारयति प्राज्ञो न स भूयोऽभिजायते ॥ ३ ॥

kathopāyānvicāryādau mokṣopāyānimānatha |
yo vicārayati prājño na sa bhūyo'bhijāyate || 3 ||

The wise man, who having well considered the narrative (of Rama) as the first step, comes afterwards to think on the means of liberation (as are expounded herein), he shall verily be exempt from transmigration.
