कीलोत्पाटी कपिर्दुःखमेतीदं हि तथा मनः ॥ ४१ ॥

apaśyankāṣṭharandhrasthavṛṣaṇākramaṇaṃ yathā |
kīlotpāṭī kapirduḥkhametīdaṃ hi tathā manaḥ || 41 ||

The mind of man is in the same plight as that of the foolish ape, which in striving to pull out the peg of a half split timber, lost its life by the smashing of its testes in the crevice.
