Verse 3.113.39

तरङ्गोत्पलमालेव कल्पनामात्रवर्णिता ।
मृणालीव बहुच्छिद्रा पङ्कप्रौढा जलात्मिका ॥ ३९ ॥

taraṅgotpalamāleva kalpanāmātravarṇitā |
mṛṇālīva bahucchidrā paṅkaprauḍhā jalātmikā || 39 ||

The poets describe the fluctuations of the world as a series of waves and the world itself, as a bed of lotuses: pleasant to sight, but floating on the unstable element. But I compare it with the porous stalk of the lotus, which is full of perforations and foramens inside; and as a pool of mud and mire, with the filth of our sins.
