Verse 5.9.24

ब्रह्मणां कोटयो याता गताः सर्गपरम्पराः ।
प्रयाताः पांसुवद्भूपाः का धृतिर्मम जीविते ॥ २४ ॥

brahmaṇāṃ koṭayo yātā gatāḥ sargaparamparāḥ |
prayātāḥ pāṃsuvadbhūpāḥ kā dhṛtirmama jīvite || 24 ||

Millions of Brahmas have passed away, and their productions have disappeared under endless successions; the kings of earth have fled like their ashes and are reduced to dust; what is the confidence then in my life and stability?
