सुषुप्तं जडधर्मापि जन्म दुःखशतप्रदम् ॥ १७ ॥

suṣuptaṃ jaḍadharmāpi janma duḥkhaśatapradam || 17 ||

All those men are called blocks who liken the blocks of wood and stone, and to be lack brains who lack their brain work, and whose desires are gone to the rack. These men possessing the property of dulness as of dull matter, are subject to the pains of repeated births, recurring like the repetends of their remaining desires.
