शास्त्रार्थपरिणामेन पालयेच्चित्तबालकम् ॥ ४९ ॥

śanaiḥ śanairlālanīyaṃ yuktibhiḥ pāvanoktibhiḥ |
śāstrārthapariṇāmena pālayeccittabālakam || 49 ||

The mind is to be trained by degrees, like a boy in the path of learning; namely by means of persuasion and good lectures, and then by teaching of the sastras, and lastly by discussion of their doctrines.
