संसारसंरम्भकुचक्रिकेयं प्रावृट्पयोबुद्बुदभङ्गुरपि ।
असावधानस्य जनस्य बुद्धौ चिरस्थिरप्रत्ययमातनोति ॥ २७ ॥

saṃsārasaṃrambhakucakrikeyaṃ prāvṛṭpayobudbudabhaṅgurapi |
asāvadhānasya janasya buddhau cirasthirapratyayamātanoti || 27 ||

The revolution of the world is comparable with that of the potter's wheel and the floating bubbles of rain water; that appear to be lasting to the ignorant observer only.
