बाष्पेणेवाहमर्थेन निःसारेणापि सारवत् ।
व्यामलः परमादर्शस्तच्छान्तौ संप्रसीदति ॥ २९ ॥

bāṣpeṇevāhamarthena niḥsāreṇāpi sāravat |
vyāmalaḥ paramādarśastacchāntau saṃprasīdati || 29 ||

The meaningless word ego, like empty vapour or smoke, has the property of soiling the mirror of the soul, which resumes its brightness after removal of the mist.
