gulmavānkāryasaṃghāto vihaṅgamakṛtāspadaḥ || 7 ||

The ears are as two wood-peckers, the fingers of both hands and feet as so many leaves of the branches, the diseases as (parasite) plants, and the acts of the body are as axes felling this tree, which is the seat of the two birds the soul and intelligence.
