हितोपदेश, मित्रलाभ - तृष्णा

तेनाधीतं श्रुतं तेन तेन सर्वमनुष्ठितम् ।
येनाशाः पृष्ठतःकृत्वा नैराश्यमवलंबितम् ॥

- हितोपदेश, मित्रलाभ

There is nothing more to hear (listen and learn), nothing more to implement for a man who has given up on greed and completely dependant on his lack of desire. (This is not to be confused with pessimism or lack of hope). The only aim of all learning and rituals is to overcome greed.

- Hitopadesha, Mitralabha
