रजोगुणहता दृष्टिस्तमः संपरिवर्धते ।
न चाधिगम्यते सत्त्वं तत्त्वमत्यन्तदूरतः ॥ १६ ॥

rajoguṇahatā dṛṣṭistamaḥ saṃparivardhate |
na cādhigamyate sattvaṃ tattvamatyantadūrataḥ || 16 ||

My sight is dimmed by the dust of sensuality: the darkness of self-esteem prevails upon me: the purity of mind is never reached to, and truth is far off from me.
