Life of Man
« on: April 27, 2009, 01:35:50 PM »
Aayurvarshashatam nrunaam parimitam raatrau tadardhan gatam
tasyaardhasya parasya chaardhamaparam balatvatvrdhatvayoh
sheham vyaadhiviyogadukha sahitam sevaadibhirniyate
jeevo vaaritaranchachalatare soukyam kutah praaninaam

The life of a man (as ordained) is limited to one hundred years; half of it is spent in night, and out of the other half one half again is pased in childhood and old age and the rest which has its illness, bereavements, and troubles is spent in serving (others). What happiness can there be for mortals in a life (again) which is even more uncertain than the ripples (on the surface) of water?
