मनसैव मनच्छित्त्वा विस्मृत्या चरमं मनः ।
वर्तमानमपि च्छित्त्वा च्छिन्नसंसारतां व्रज ॥ ३६ ॥

manasaiva manacchittvā vismṛtyā caramaṃ manaḥ |
vartamānamapi cchittvā cchinnasaṃsāratāṃ vraja || 36 ||

Having destroyed the former state of your mind by its present state, try to forget them both by your heedless mind in future, and manage yourself unmindful of the world.
