Bhagavadgeeta Verse 2.67

इन्द्रियाणां हि चरतां यत् मनः अनुविधीयतॆ ।
तत् अस्य हरति प्रज्ञां वायुः नावं इव अम्भसि ॥ २.६७ ॥

ಇಂದ್ರಿಯಾಣಾಂ ಹಿ ಚರತಾಂ ಯತ್ ಮನಃ ಅನುವಿಧೀಯತೇ |
ತತ್ ಅಸ್ಯ ಹರತಿ ಪ್ರಜ್ಞಾಂ ವಾಯುಃ ನಾವಂ ಇವ ಅಂಭಸಿ || ೨.೬೭ ||

iMdriyANAM hi charatAM yat manaH anuvidheeyatE |
tat asya harati praj~jAM vAyuH nAvaM iva aMbhasi || 2.67 ||
