क्षणाच्च किङ्चिदधिकमभ्यसेच्च दिने दिने।
वलितं पलितं चैव षण्मासोर्ध्वं न दृश्यते।
याममात्रं तु यो नित्यमभ्यसेत् स तु कालजित्॥८२॥

Kṣaṇācca kiṅcidadhikamabhyasecca dine dine|
Valitaṁ palitaṁ caiva ṣaṇmāsordhvaṁ na dṛśyate|
Yāmamātraṁ tu yo nityamabhyaset sa tu kālajit||82||

Starting with one moment (on the first day) (kṣaṇāt ca), (the Yogī) should practice (Viparītakaraṇīmudrā) (abhyaset ca) by adding a little more (kiñcid-adhikam) every day (dine dine)1. After (ūrdhvam) six (ṣaṭ) months (māsa), wrinkle(s) (valitam) and (ca eva) gray hair(s) (palitam) are not seen (dṛśyate) (in the body of the adept)2. However (tu), he (saḥ) who (yaḥ) practices (Viparītakaraṇīmudrā) (abhyaset) constantly (nityam) for merely (mātram) one yāma --three hours-- (yāma) (becomes) indeed (tu) a Conqueror (jit) of Time --identified with Death, in this context-- (kāla)3||82||
