नष्टात्मस्थितयो भोगवह्निषु प्रज्वलन्त्यलम् ।
देवा दिवि दवेनाद्रौ दह्यमाना द्रुमा इव ॥ २७ ॥

naṣṭātmasthitayo bhogavahniṣu prajvalantyalam |
devā divi davenādrau dahyamānā drumā iva || 27 ||

These are drowned in their enjoyments, and lost to the bliss of their souls; and are ever burning in the flames of worldly cares; such are some among the gods, who are burning on high, like as the mountain trees are inflamed by the wild fire.
