Verse 7.6.40

सुसाध्यः करटोद्भेदो मत्तैरावणदन्तिनः ।
नोत्पथप्रतिपन्नानां स्वेन्द्रियाणां विनिग्रहः ॥ ४० ॥

susādhyaḥ karaṭodbhedo mattairāvaṇadantinaḥ |
notpathapratipannānāṃ svendriyāṇāṃ vinigrahaḥ || 40 ||

It may be possible for us, to pierce the frontal bone even of the furious Airavata elephant of Indra in war; but it is too hard for any body, to repress the aberrant senses within their proper bounds.
