Verse 2.18.12

मनः प्रसादमायाति शरदीव महत्सरः ।
परं साम्यमुपादत्ते निर्मन्दर इवार्णवः ॥ १२ ॥

manaḥ prasādamāyāti śaradīva mahatsaraḥ |
paraṃ sāmyamupādatte nirmandara ivārṇavaḥ || 12 ||

The intellect becomes (by culture) as clear as a great lake in autumn, and it gets its calmness (by reason), like that of the sea after its churning by the Mandara mountain.
