श्रीवसिष्ठ उवाच ।
अत एव हि राम त्वं श्रेयः प्राप्नोषि शाश्वतम् ।
स्वप्रयत्नोपनीतेन पौरुषेणैव नान्यथा ॥ २४ ॥

śrīvasiṣṭha uvāca |
ata eva hi rāma tvaṃ śreyaḥ prāpnoṣi śāśvatam |
svaprayatnopanītena pauruṣeṇaiva nānyathā || 24 ||

Vasishtha replied:—So then O Rama, you will be able to reach to your lasting good, if you will but exert your activity for it, without which there is no other way to it.
