wine of delusion made the world mad

With the daily rising and setting of the sun, life shortens.
On account of affairs heavily burdened with manifold activities time is not felt.
At the beholding birth, death, old age, and sufferings is fear produced either.
Alas! by drinking the stupefying wine of delusion the world has become mad.
– from Vairagya Satakam

आदित्यस्य गतागतैरहरह: संक्षीयते जीवितम्
व्यापारैर्बहुकार्यभारगुरुभि: कालो~पि न ञायते ।
दृष्ट्वा जन्म जरा विपत्ति मरणं त्रासश्च नॊत्पद्यते
पीत्वा मोहमयीं प्रसाद मदिरान्मुमुत्तभूतं जगत् ॥
