The pole-tusked elephant
Is like the sage; for he
Lives lonely in the woods,
Gladly, and frugally.
The same, tr. Kisari Mohan Ganguli in The Mahabharata...Çanti Parva
, [I] (Calcutta: Bhārata Press, 1890), p. 340:
He that cheerfully leads such a life in the forest, with large-tusked elephants for companions, with no human being by his side, and contented with the produce of the wilderness, is said to act after the manner of the wise.
