अनालोकनसिद्धं यत्तदालोकान्न विद्यते ।
कृष्णाद्यनुपलम्भोऽत्र दृष्टान्तः स्पष्टचेष्टितः ॥ १७ ॥

anālokanasiddhaṃ yattadālokānna vidyate |
kṛṣṇādyanupalambho'tra dṛṣṭāntaḥ spaṣṭaceṣṭitaḥ || 17 ||

What is done by oversight or in ignorance, is undone or foiled by sight or knowledge of it; as for instance the thefts and other wicked acts, which are carried on in the darkness, disappear from sight before the blaze of daylight.
