“7. He saw the brilliant gem before him, but became mistrustful of his sight and the reality of the object before it; as a poor man hearing of his sudden elevation to royalty, mistrusts the report and doubts its being meant for him.”

“27. The affections which are brought to one by his own ignorance, are by far greater than those which are caused by his old age and the torments of death. The calamity of ignorance supercedes [sic] all other earthly affections, as the black hairs rise on the top of the body and cover the crown of the head.”

– quoted from “CHAPTER LXXXVIII. The Tale of the crystal Gem.” in The Yoga-Vasishtha Maharamayana of Valmiki (translated by Vihari-Lala Mitra)
