Shukacharyaru to Parikshit

śābdasya hi brahmaṇa eṣa panthā
yan nāmabhir dhyāyati dhīr apārthaiḥ
paribhramaṁs tatra na vindate ‘rthān
māyāmaye vāsanayā śayānaḥ

śābdasya—of the Vedic sound; hi—certainly; brahmaṇaḥ—of the Vedas; eṣaḥ—these; panthāḥ—the way; yat—what is; nāmabhiḥ—by different names; dhyāyati—ponders; dhīḥ—intelligence; apārthaiḥ—by meaningless ideas; paribhraman—wandering; tatra—there; na—never; vindate—enjoys; arthān—realities; māyāmaye—in illusory things; vāsanayā—by different desires; śayānaḥ—as if dreaming in sleep.
