आदित्यस्य गतागतैरहरहस्संक्षीयते जीवितं
व्यापारैर्बहुकार्यभारगुरुभि: कालोऽपि न ज्ञायते।
दृष्ट्वा जन्मजराविपत्तिमरणं त्रासश्च नोत्पद्यते
पीत्वा मोहमयीं प्रमादमदिरां उन्मत्तभूतं जगत् ॥

Aadityasya gataagatairaharahah samksheeyate jeevitam
Vyaapaarairbahukaaryabhaaragurubhih kaalo’pi na jnaayate
Drishtwaa janma jaraavipattimaranam traasashcha notpadyate
Peetwaa mohamayeem pramaadamadiraam unmattabhootam jagat

Every day, as the Sun rises and sets, there is erosion in life, each day bringing one nearer to death.  Because of the burden of worldly activities in which human beings are immersed, they are unaware of the inexorable efflux of time. In spite of seeing, before one’s eyes, birth, old age, disease and death, there is no sense of fear.  The whole world, because of its indifference and carelessness about these facts of life, has lost its senses intoxicated by the delusion  (that every thing would be fine).
