मयैवेहासदभ्यासान्मिथ्या सदिव लक्ष्यसे ।
मृगतृष्णेव तेनैतत्त्वत्कृतं मत्कृतं भवेत् ॥ ४५ ॥

mayaivehāsadabhyāsānmithyā sadiva lakṣyase |
mṛgatṛṣṇeva tenaitattvatkṛtaṃ matkṛtaṃ bhavet || 45 ||

Or it is my long habit of thinking that makes the untruth appear as truth to me; and like the mirage of the desert, our mirage of life, presents its falsehoods as realities unto us.
