त्वक्सुधालेपमसृणं यन्त्रसंचारचञ्चलम् ।
मनः सदाखुनोत्खातं नेष्टं देहगृहं मम ॥ ३२ ॥

tvaksudhālepamasṛṇaṃ yantrasaṃcāracañcalam |
manaḥ sadākhunotkhātaṃ neṣṭaṃ dehagṛhaṃ mama || 32 ||

This house of the body, having the white-wash of ointments on the outer skin, and the machinery of the limbs in continued motion, and the restless mind burrowing its base like the mischievous mouse, is not liked by me.
