चित्तायत्तं नृणां शुक्रं शुक्रायत्तं च जीवितम्।
तस्माच्छुक्रं मनश्चैव रक्षणीयं प्रयत्नतः॥९०॥

Cittāyattaṁ nṛṇāṁ śukraṁ śukrāyattaṁ ca jīvitam|
Tasmācchukraṁ manaścaiva rakṣaṇīyaṁ prayatnataḥ||90||

(Since) the semen (śukram) of men (nṛṇām) depends (āyattam) on mind (citta) and (ca) life (jīvitam) depends (āyattam) upon the semen (śukra)1, therefore (tasmāt), semen (śukram) and (ca eva) mind (manas) are to be kept and protected (rakṣaṇīyam) with especial effort (prayatnatas)||90||
