प्रकाशयति दीपको भुवि पदार्थजातंतथाप्यधस्थ-
तिमिरं महन्नहि विनाशमागच्छति ।
महिमवेदनं न खलु हृद्यबन्धापहम् ॥
prakAshayati dIpako bhuvi padArthajAtaM tathApi adhastha -
timiram mahan na hi vinAsham aagachChati ।
mahAtma nikaTa sthita aajna suta dArakaaNAm mahAtmanaH
mahimavedanaM na khalu hRudyabandhApaham ॥
A lamp is capable of throwing light on any object and drive away the darkness. But it can not make the darkness right below it go away at all. Similarly, a scholar may teach the entire world to renounce and let go of attachments. But it is usually seen that people who are close him - wife, sons (children) and servants will not be able to let go of their attachments towards him.
