Verse 1.12.7

किंनामेदं बत सुखं येयं संसारसंततिः ।
जायते मृतये लोको म्रियते जननाय च ॥ ७ ॥

kiṃnāmedaṃ bata sukhaṃ yeyaṃ saṃsārasaṃtatiḥ |
jāyate mṛtaye loko mriyate jananāya ca || 7 ||

What are these worldly pleasures good for, (thought I), and what means the multiplication (of our species) on earth? Men are born to die, and they die to be born again.
