Kachi kaya man athir, thir thir kaam karat
Jyon jyon nar nidhadak phire, tyon tyon kaal hasat
काची काया मन अथिर, थिर थिर काम करत |
ज्यों ज्यों नर निधड़क फिरे, त्यों त्यों काल हसत ||
The body is perishable like an unbaked clay pot, and the mind is restless
Still, man delays in worldly actions unmindful of fear, death looks at him and laughs
