तावदुत्तमतामेति पुमानपि दिवौकसाम् ।
कृपणैरिन्द्रियैर्यावत्तृणवन्नापकृष्यते ॥ ४२ ॥

tāvaduttamatāmeti pumānapi divaukasām |
kṛpaṇairindriyairyāvattṛṇavannāpakṛṣyate || 42 ||

So long as a man is not flung and carried about as a light and trifling straw, by the irresistible force of his sensual appetites, he is said to have attained to the perfection and excellence of the deities of heaven.
