भोक्तव्याश्चरमं राम गरुडेनेव पन्नगाः ॥ १८ ॥

pūrvaṃ dhiyā vicāryaite bhogā bhogibhayapradāḥ |
bhoktavyāścaramaṃ rāma garuḍeneva pannagāḥ || 18 ||

The enjoyments of the world are to be duly considered, ere one dares to come to the enjoyment of them; and like the ambrosia, before they feed on any other fare.
