संसारसंसृतावस्यां फेनोऽस्मिन्सर्गसागरे ।
कायवल्लयाम्भसो ब्रह्मञ्जीवितं मे न रोचते ॥ ९ ॥

saṃsārasaṃsṛtāvasyāṃ pheno'sminsargasāgare |
kāyavallayāmbhaso brahmañjīvitaṃ me na rocate || 9 ||

This world (Sansara) is as a whirlpool amidst the ocean of creation, and every individual body is as (evanescent) as a foam or froth or bubble, which can give me no relish in this life.
