न कदाचन मे चेतः स्वामालूनविशीर्णताम् ।
त्यजत्याकुलया वृत्त्या चञ्चलत्वमिवार्णवः ॥ ९ ॥

na kadācana me cetaḥ svāmālūnaviśīrṇatām |
tyajatyākulayā vṛttyā cañcalatvamivārṇavaḥ || 9 ||

The mind can never get rid of its wavering state owing to the habitual fickleness of its nature, resembling the restlessness of the sea.
