श्रीवसिष्ठ उवाच ।
संसारमार्गगहने पतितस्यापतन्ति हि ।
वृत्तवृत्तान्तलक्षाणि कीटा इव घनागमे ॥ १ ॥

śrīvasiṣṭha uvāca |
saṃsāramārgagahane patitasyāpatanti hi |
vṛttavṛttāntalakṣāṇi kīṭā iva ghanāgame || 1 ||

Vasishtha said:—Thus the living soul, being let fall in the mazy path of his world, is encompassed by calamities and accidents as countless as the animalcules, which are generated in the rainy season.
