क्रूरेण जडतां यातस्तृष्णाभार्यानुगामिना ।
शवं कौलेयकेनेव ब्रह्मन्मुक्तोऽस्मि चेतसा ॥ १५ ॥

krūreṇa jaḍatāṃ yātastṛṣṇābhāryānugāminā |
śavaṃ kauleyakeneva brahmanmukto'smi cetasā || 15 ||

I am devoured, O Brahman! like a clod of cold meat, by the cruelty and greediness of my heart, as a carcase is swallowed by a hungry dog and its greedy mate.
