Verse 1.17.35

विचित्रवर्णा विगुणा दीर्घा मलिनसंस्थितिः ।
शून्या शून्यपदा तृष्णा शक्रकार्मुकधर्मिणी ॥ ३५ ॥

vicitravarṇā viguṇā dīrghā malinasaṃsthitiḥ |
śūnyā śūnyapadā tṛṣṇā śakrakārmukadharmiṇī || 35 ||

Covetousness stretches itself long and wide and presents to us a variety of hues as the rainbow. It is equally unsubstantial and without any property as the iris, resting in vapour and vacuum and being but a shadow itself.
