दरिद्रा छिन्नवृक्षस्य मूलेनेव विडम्ब्यते ॥ ९ ॥

calitācalitenāntaravaṣṭambhena me matiḥ |
daridrā chinnavṛkṣasya mūleneva viḍambyate || 9 ||

My mind is in a state of suspense, being unable to ascertain the real nature of my soul. I am like one in the dark, who is deceived by the stump of a fallen tree at a distance, to think it a human figure.
