The Wise Man ⧸ Verse 87

A wise man should leave the dark state (of ordinary life), and follow the bright state (of the Bhikshu). After going from his home to a homeless state, he should in his retirement look for enjoyment where there seemed to be no enjoyment.
English translation by Max Müller, from The Sacred Books of the East (1881).
