व्यूढानां वासनावातैर्नृतृणानामितस्ततः ।
तान्यापतन्ति दुःखानि तत्र वक्तुं न पार्यते ॥ २७ ॥

vyūḍhānāṃ vāsanāvātairnṛtṛṇānāmitastataḥ |
tānyāpatanti duḥkhāni tatra vaktuṃ na pāryate || 27 ||

Men are as straws carried here and there by the current of their desire, and whirled about in its eddy; they are overtaken by and overwhelmed in an endless series of difficulties which are impossible for me to enumerate.
