मोहोग्रमिहिकामेघे घनं स्फूर्जति गर्जति ॥ ३ ॥

vāsanāvātavalite kadāśātaḍiti sphuṭe |
mohogramihikāmeghe ghanaṃ sphūrjati garjati || 3 ||

What can we do under the misty cloud of error (overhanging our minds), and raising our tempestuous desires which flash forth in lightnings of ambition, and burst out in the thunder claps of selfishness?
