śatakatrayam 1.75: kāntākaṭākṣāviśikhā (his lover’s arrow-like gaze)

by Jahnabi Barooah

कान्ताकटाक्षविशिखा न लुनन्ति यस्य
चित्तं न निर्दहति कोपकृशानुताप: ।
कर्षन्ति भूरिविषयाश्च न लोभपाशा
लोकत्रयं जयति कृत्स्नमिदं स धीर: ।।७५।।
नीतिशतके

his lover’s arrow-like gaze
does not rend asunder his heart,
anger’s fire-like fury
cannot consume him,
nor can the
all-consuming sensual world.
he is a resolute man
who has completely mastered
all the three worlds. ||75||
