Verse 1.31.4

नृत्यत्युत्ताण्डवं चण्डे लोले लोभकलापिनि ।
सुविकासिनि सास्फोटे ह्यनर्थकुटजद्रुमे ॥ ४ ॥

nṛtyatyuttāṇḍavaṃ caṇḍe lole lobhakalāpini |
suvikāsini sāsphoṭe hyanarthakuṭajadrume || 4 ||

How shall we save ourselves from the temptations of our desires dancing like peacocks (and displaying their gaudy train) around us; and from the bustle of the world breaking in upon us as thickly as the blossoms of the Kurchi plant.
