केवलं विररामास्य चेतो विगतचापलम् ।
भोगेभ्यो भूरिभङ्गेभ्यो धाराभ्य इव चातकः ॥ १२ ॥

kevalaṃ virarāmāsya ceto vigatacāpalam |
bhogebhyo bhūribhaṅgebhyo dhārābhya iva cātakaḥ || 12 ||

His mind grew indifferent to its perceptions of the transitory enjoyments of the world, and like the Chataka thirsted only after the dew drops of heavenly bliss.
