पक्षमासर्तुकटके दिनारे वर्षदण्डके ।
क्षणनाभौ स्पन्दमये कालचक्रे वहत्यथ ॥ ४३ ॥

pakṣamāsartukaṭake dināre varṣadaṇḍake |
kṣaṇanābhau spandamaye kālacakre vahatyatha || 43 ||

The wheel of time rolled on its two semicircles of the fort-nights. The spikes of months, the arcs of the seasons, the loops of days and nights and the orbit of years. The axle composed of fleeting moments; giving incessant momentum to the wheel.
