वातान्तर्दीपकशिखालोलं जगति जीवितम् ।
तडित्स्फुरणसंकाशा पदार्थश्रीर्जगत्र्त्रये ॥ ११ ॥

vātāntardīpakaśikhālolaṃ jagati jīvitam |
taḍitsphuraṇasaṃkāśā padārthaśrīrjagatrtraye || 11 ||

Our lives in this (mortal) world, are as unsteady as the flame of a lamp placed at the window, and the splendour of all the objects in the three worlds, is as flickering as the flashing of the lightning.
