बृहस्पतिरुवाच ।
अपि पुष्पावदलनादपि लोचनमीलनात् ।
सुकरोऽहंकृतेस्त्यागो न क्लेशोऽत्र मनागपि ॥ ३१ ॥

bṛhaspatiruvāca |
api puṣpāvadalanādapi locanamīlanāt |
sukaro'haṃkṛtestyāgo na kleśo'tra manāgapi || 31 ||

Brihaspati answered said:—Why my son, the demolition of our egoism is as easy as the twinkling of our eyelids, and easier far than the crushing of flowers; and there is not the least pain in your rejecting this feeling.
