यौवनोत्कटकल्लोला वहल्लोलासिफेनिला ।
परावर्तमहावर्ता याति जीवितदुर्नदी ॥ २९ ॥

yauvanotkaṭakallolā vahallolāsiphenilā |
parāvartamahāvartā yāti jīvitadurnadī || 29 ||

The stream of life glides muddily on, with the foam and froth of cares and anxieties; there are the whirlpools of repeated transmigrations, and the waves of youthful levities, which are as boisterous as they are dangerous.
