श्रीवसिष्ठ उवाच ।
यथा तुषारकणिका भास्करालोकनात्क्षणात् ।
नश्यत्येवमविद्येयं राघवात्मावलोकनात् ॥ २ ॥

śrīvasiṣṭha uvāca |
yathā tuṣārakaṇikā bhāskarālokanātkṣaṇāt |
naśyatyevamavidyeyaṃ rāghavātmāvalokanāt || 2 ||

Vasishtha replied:—As the particles of snow, melt away at the sight of the sun, so is this ignorance dispelled in a moment, by a glance of the holy spirit.
