[In this verse, a person hints to his friend, a good scholar, that he should go away from his native place, as there is little appreciation for his skill in that kingdom]
O one who makes the whole world happy, O sandal tree, my friend, do not stay in this forest any longer. It is full of bamboo trees, harsh and with hollow hearts. They clash among themselves and the ensuing fire consumes not only their own selves but may even destroy the whole forest.
