न विवेकलवं प्रौढं भंक्तुं शक्ता दुराशयाः ।
कल्पक्षोभमहाधीरं शैलं मन्दानिला इव ॥ १३ ॥

na vivekalavaṃ prauḍhaṃ bhaṃktuṃ śaktā durāśayāḥ |
kalpakṣobhamahādhīraṃ śailaṃ mandānilā iva || 13 ||

Yet the wicked passions and desires, have no power to destroy the perfected understanding; as the lesser gales of minor deluges, are not strong enough to remove the mountain.
