maurkhyamatyantaghanatāmāgataṃ samavasthitam |
sthāvarādi tanu prāptaṃ kīdṛśaṃ bhavati prabho || 9 ||

Rama said I see sir, that when our ignorance becomes too gross and solid, it becomes as dull and solid as stone; but tell me O venerable sir, how it becomes as a fixed tree or any other immovable substance.
