    मुचुकुन्द उवाच विमोहितोऽयं जन ईशमायया त्वदीयया त्वां न भजत्यनर्थदृक् । सुखाय दुःखप्रभवेषु सज्जते गृहेषु योषित्पुरुषश्च वञ्चितः ।। १०-५१-४६ ।।

    Śrī Mucukunda said: O Lord, the people of this world, both men and women, are bewildered by Your illusory energy. Unaware of their real benefit, they do not worship You but instead seek happiness by entangling themselves in family affairs, which are actually sources of misery. ।। 10-51-46 ।।

  2. 47

    लब्ध्वा जनो दुर्लभमत्र मानुषं कथञ्चिदव्यङ्गमयत्नतोऽनघ । पादारविन्दं न भजत्यसन्मतिर्गृहान्धकूपे पतितो यथा पशुः ।। १०-५१-४७ ।।

    That person has an impure mind who, despite having somehow or other automatically obtained the rare and highly evolved human form of life, does not worship Your lotus feet. Like an animal that has fallen into a blind well, such a person has fallen into the darkness of a material home. ।। 10-51-47 ।।

  3. 48

    ममैष कालोऽजित निष्फलो गतो राज्यश्रियोन्नद्धमदस्य भूपतेः । मर्त्यात्मबुद्धेः सुतदारकोशभूष्वासज्जमानस्य दुरन्तचिन्तया ।। १०-५१-४८ ।।

    I have wasted all this time, O unconquerable one, becoming more and more intoxicated by my domain and opulence as an earthly king. Misidentifying the mortal body as the self, becoming attached to children, wives, treasury and land, I suffered endless anxiety. ।। 10-51-48 ।।

  4. 49

    कलेवरेऽस्मिन् घटकुड्यसन्निभे निरूढमानो नरदेव इत्यहम् । वृतो रथेभाश्वपदात्यनीकपैर्गां पर्यटंस्त्वागणयन् सुदुर्मदः ।। १०-५१-४९ ।।

    With deep arrogance I took myself to be the body, which is a material object like a pot or a wall. Thinking myself a god among men, I traveled the earth surrounded by my charioteers, elephants, cavalry, foot soldiers and generals, disregarding You in my deluding pride. ।। 10-51-49 ।।

  5. 50

    प्रमत्तमुच्चैरितिकृत्यचिन्तया प्रवृद्धलोभं विषयेषु लालसम् । त्वमप्रमत्तः सहसाभिपद्यसे क्षुल्लेलिहानोऽहिरिवाखुमन्तकः ।। १०-५१-५० ।।

    A man obsessed with thoughts of what he thinks needs to be done, intensely greedy, and delighting in sense enjoyment is suddenly confronted by You, who are ever alert. Like a hungry snake licking its fangs before a mouse, You appear before him as death. ।। 10-51-50 ।।
