Verse 6.91.11

यदा विरक्तः पुरुषो भोगाशां त्यक्तुमिच्छति ।
तदा प्रकम्पतेऽज्ञानं छेद्ये वृक्षे पिशाचवत् ॥ ११ ॥

yadā viraktaḥ puruṣo bhogāśāṃ tyaktumicchati |
tadā prakampate'jñānaṃ chedye vṛkṣe piśācavat || 11 ||

When the man who is disgusted with the world, wants to relinquish his desire of enjoyment, he makes his ignorance tremble in himself, as the demon that dwells on a tree, quakes with fear when the tree is felled.
