श्वभ्रान्तरं श्वभ्रनिपातदोषात् संप्राप्नुवन्मुग्धमृगः प्रयाति ।
मोहं यथा पातमयैकरूपं जीवस्तथा संसृतिपात्रमूढः ॥ ३१ ॥

śvabhrāntaraṃ śvabhranipātadoṣāt saṃprāpnuvanmugdhamṛgaḥ prayāti |
mohaṃ yathā pātamayaikarūpaṃ jīvastathā saṃsṛtipātramūḍhaḥ || 31 ||

As a stray deer falls into the pit repeatedly for green grass, so ignorant man repeatedly falls into the pit of this world, owing to his ignorance.
