Verse 5.24.20

क्रमादभ्यस्यमानैषा विषयारतिरात्मज ।
सर्वतः स्फुटतामेति सेकसिक्ता लता यथा ॥ २० ॥

kramādabhyasyamānaiṣā viṣayāratirātmaja |
sarvataḥ sphuṭatāmeti sekasiktā latā yathā || 20 ||

It is the gradual habit of renouncing our fondness for temporal objects, that shows itself in time in our resignation of the world; as continuous watering at the roots of plants, makes them grow to large trees afterwards.
