यावन्म्लायति नो कायलतिका कालभास्वता ।
भूतलेऽपतितां तावदेनामुद्धृत्य धारय ॥ ३ ॥

yāvanmlāyati no kāyalatikā kālabhāsvatā |
bhūtale'patitāṃ tāvadenāmuddhṛtya dhāraya || 3 ||

As long as the body of the plant does not fade away in course of time, nor roll upon the ground as the decayed and dead body of man; so long should you hold it up upon the prop of reason.
