तदेव भुक्तविरसं लक्ष्यते कर्म कुर्वताम् ॥ १६ ॥

punardinaṃ punaḥ śyāmā dānādānaśataṃ punaḥ |
tadeva bhuktavirasaṃ lakṣyate karma kurvatām || 16 ||

I see the return of day and night, in endless succession after one another; and I find the repetition of the same acts of giving and taking (receipts and disbursements), and lasting the same enjoyments, to have grown tedious and insipid to me.
