सत्कायदृष्टिश्च घनास्य भोति उदीर्यते क्रोधबलं च तस्य ।
संरागु तस्यातिभृशं च भोति तिर्याण योनीषु च सो सदा रमी ॥ १३४ ॥

satkāyadṛṣṭiśca ghanāsya bhoti udīryate krodhabalaṃ ca tasya |
saṃrāgu tasyātibhṛśaṃ ca bhoti tiryāṇa yonīṣu ca so sadā ramī || 134 ||

His sight is dim to distinguish the real. His anger appears mighty in him, and his passion is most violent; he always delights in animal wombs.
