विलोड्यमाना जनता जगत्यां नवेत्युपायातमहो न पातम् ॥ २१ ॥

kuto'pi saṃvardhitatuccharūpairbhāvairamībhiḥ kṣaṇanaṣṭadṛṣṭaiḥ |
viloḍyamānā janatā jagatyāṃ navetyupāyātamaho na pātam || 21 ||

Seeing the vile trash of worldly gains earned and accumulated by the basest means to be but transitory, the infatuated mob do not perceive their approaching dissolution.
