आखुनेव जरच्छुभ्रं कालेन विनिहन्यते ॥ १६ ॥

pratyahaṃ khedamutsṛjya śanairalamanāratam |
ākhuneva jaracchubhraṃ kālena vinihanyate || 16 ||

As a house is slowly dilapidated by the mice continually burrowing under it, so is the body of the living gradually corroded by the (pernicious) teeth of time boring within it.
