किं मे राज्येन किं भोगैः कोऽहं किमिदमागतम् ।
यन्मिथ्यैवास्तु तन्मिथ्या कस्य नाम किमागतम् ॥ १५ ॥

kiṃ me rājyena kiṃ bhogaiḥ ko'haṃ kimidamāgatam |
yanmithyaivāstu tanmithyā kasya nāma kimāgatam || 15 ||

Of what use is royalty and these enjoyments to me? What am I and whence are all these things? They are but vanities, and let them continue as such without any good or loss to any body.
