जगति नास्ति तथा गुणवर्जितं मरणभाजनमायुरिदं यथा ॥ २३ ॥

sthiratayā sukhabhāsitayā tayā satatamujjñitamuttamaphalgu ca |
jagati nāsti tathā guṇavarjitaṃ maraṇabhājanamāyuridaṃ yathā || 23 ||

Thus there is nothing so worthless in the world as this life, which is devoid of every good quality and ever subject to death, unless it is attended by the permanent felicity of emancipation.
