Verse 5.70.5

आत्मारामा महात्मानः प्रबुद्धाः परमोदयाः ।
बहिः पिच्छाग्रतरला अन्तर्मेरुरिवाचलाः ॥ ५ ॥

ātmārāmā mahātmānaḥ prabuddhāḥ paramodayāḥ |
bahiḥ picchāgrataralā antarmerurivācalāḥ || 5 ||

Men of great souls, who are awakened and enlightened by knowledge, and raised high above the rest of mankind, are wavering on their outside as a peacock's feather (i.e., as a weather cock); but inwardly they are as firm as mountainous rocks.
