स्वप्नात्स्वप्नान्तरं तत्र तथा पश्यन्पुनःपुनः ।
मिथ्या वटेषु लुठति शिलेव शिखरच्युता ॥ ५७ ॥

svapnātsvapnāntaraṃ tatra tathā paśyanpunaḥpunaḥ |
mithyā vaṭeṣu luṭhati śileva śikharacyutā || 57 ||

These rove from one error to another, as a man sees one dream after another; and roll about in the pit of their delusion, as a stone when hurled from a hill downward.
