Verse 1.27.26

प्रदीपशान्तिष्विव भुक्तभूरिदशास्वतिस्नेहनिबन्धनीषु ।
संसारमालासु चलाचलासु न ज्ञायते तत्त्वमतात्त्विकीषु ॥ २६ ॥

pradīpaśāntiṣviva bhuktabhūridaśāsvatisnehanibandhanīṣu |
saṃsāramālāsu calācalāsu na jñāyate tattvamatāttvikīṣu || 26 ||

As the burning and extinguishing of the lamp depend on the wick and its moistening oil; so does our course in this transitory world (depend on our acts and affections only). Nobody knows the true cause of this mysterious existence.
