Verse 1.27.15

कामार्थधर्माप्तिकृतान्तराभिः क्रियाभिरादौ दिवसानि नीत्वा ।
चेतश्चलद्बर्हिणपिच्छलोलं विश्रान्तिमागच्छतु केन पुंसः ॥ १५ ॥

kāmārthadharmāptikṛtāntarābhiḥ kriyābhirādau divasāni nītvā |
cetaścaladbarhiṇapicchalolaṃ viśrāntimāgacchatu kena puṃsaḥ || 15 ||

Men having passed their early days in the gratification of their desires and other worldly pursuits at the expense of the acts of virtue and piety, are as much troubled with anxieties at the end, that their minds are seized with a tremor like that of the plumage of a peacock shaken by the breeze. How then can a man attain to tranquility at any time?
