Srimad Bhagavatam Canto-11, Chapter-08, Text-28
tasya nirvinna-cittaya
gitam srnu yatha mama
nirveda asa-pasanam
purusasya yatha hy asih

Translation:
The prostitute felt disgusted with her material situation and thus became indifferent to it. Indeed, detachment acts like a sword, cutting to pieces the binding network of material hopes and desires. Now please hear from me the song sung by the prostitute in that situation.

Purport:
The network of material desires is created when one falsely thinks that he can establish himself permanently in the material world. This binding network should be cut by the sword of detachment; otherwise one will be forced to wander in the illusory network of maya with no understanding of liberated life on the spiritual platform.
