क्षणादुच्छूनतामेति मनोमीनः क्षणाद्गतिः ॥ ३७ ॥

cintānadyā mahāvarte vīcikānicaye ciram |
kṣaṇāducchūnatāmeti manomīnaḥ kṣaṇādgatiḥ || 37 ||

The mind is overwhelmed in the whirlpool of its cares; it is sometimes hurled down to the bottom, and at others floating upon and loosened from it like a living fish caught by angling hook.
