शारीरनौश्चर्मनिबन्धबद्धा भवाम्बुधावालुलिता भ्रमन्ती ।
प्रलोड्यते पञ्चभिरिन्द्रियाख्यैरधोभवन्ती मकरैरधीरा ॥ ६ ॥

śārīranauścarmanibandhabaddhā bhavāmbudhāvālulitā bhramantī |
praloḍyate pañcabhirindriyākhyairadhobhavantī makarairadhīrā || 6 ||

Human body is like a vessel covered with skin; and glides over the ocean of the world (without its helmsman of reason). It is tossed about by sensual pleasures, and goes down under the water by the pressure of its whale-like passions.
