क्रव्यादगृध्रगोमायुकौलेयकवलाङ्गिकाः ।
स्त्रियः समुपमीयन्ते चन्द्रचन्दनपङ्कजैः ॥ ४ ॥

kravyādagṛdhragomāyukauleyakavalāṅgikāḥ |
striyaḥ samupamīyante candracandanapaṅkajaiḥ || 4 ||

Their comely persons which are compared with the moon, the lotus flower, and sandal paste for their coolness by fascinated minds; are viewed as indifferently by the wise, as by the insensible beasts which make a prey of them.
