तमोघनघने शून्ये संसार इव जीवकः ॥ २८ ॥

śuṣkasāgaragambhīre gajaḥ khāte papāta ha |
tamoghanaghane śūnye saṃsāra iva jīvakaḥ || 28 ||

At last the elephant fell down into a hollow pit, which was as deep and dry as the dried bed of a gulf; as a man falls into the profound and inane ocean of this world, which is overcast by an impervious darkness around.
