पुनःपुनर्दैववशादुपेत्य स्वदेहभारेण कृतोपकारः ।
विलूयते यत्र तरुः कुठारैराश्वासने तत्र हि कः प्रसङ्गः ॥ २९ ॥

punaḥpunardaivavaśādupetya svadehabhāreṇa kṛtopakāraḥ |
vilūyate yatra taruḥ kuṭhārairāśvāsane tatra hi kaḥ prasaṅgaḥ || 29 ||

The tree which is ordained to be useful to mankind by the loads of fruits and flowers that it bears upon its body, is fated also to be hewn down by the cruel axe at last. How then can beneficent men expect to avoid the cruel hand of death.
