ज्ञत्वेन ज्ञत्वमासाद्य मुनिर्भवति मानवः ।
अज्ञत्वादज्ञतामेत्य प्रयाति पशुवृक्षताम् ॥ ६६ ॥

jñatvena jñatvamāsādya munirbhavati mānavaḥ |
ajñatvādajñatāmetya prayāti paśuvṛkṣatām || 66 ||

A man having obtained his wisdom by means of his knowledge, is said to have become a muni or sage, but growing an ignoramus owing to his ignorance, he becomes a brute creature, or degraded even lower to some vegetable life.
