तृष्णालताकाननचारिणोऽमी शाखाशतं काममहीरुहेषु ।
परिभ्रमन्तः क्षपयन्ति कालं मनोमृगा नो फलमाप्नुवन्ति ॥ ७ ॥

tṛṣṇālatākānanacāriṇo'mī śākhāśataṃ kāmamahīruheṣu |
paribhramantaḥ kṣapayanti kālaṃ manomṛgā no phalamāpnuvanti || 7 ||

The world is a wilderness abounding in creepers of avarice and trees of sensuality, with hundreds of desires as their branches. Our minds like monkeys pass their time in roving about this forest without getting the fruits.
