उत्खातं निधिशङ्कया क्षितितलं ध्माता गिरेर्धातवो
निस्तीर्णः सरितां पतिर्नृपतयो यत्नेन सन्तोषिताः।
मन्त्राराधनतत्परेण मनसा नीताः श्मशाने निशाः
प्राप्तः काणवराटकोऽपि न मया तृष्णे सकामा भव।।

utkhātaṁ nidhiśaṅkayā kṣititalaṁ dhmātā girerdhātavo
nistīrṇaḥ saritāṁ patiḥ nṛpatayo yatnena santoṣitāḥ
mantrārādhanatatpareṇa manasā nītāḥ śmaśāne niśāḥ
prāptaḥ kāṇavarāṭako'pi na mayā tṛṣṇe sakāmā bhava

I have dug the earth in search of hidden treasures, smelted rocks for metals, crossed the ocean, served to please kings, spent nights in burial grounds concentrating on mantras and worship, and I did not get even a broken shell. So, O Desire! be satisfied.

What have we not done to satisfy our desires! We continue trying to satisfy our desire and will do so for the rest of our lives. In the end it is only DESIRE that satisfies itself.
