AVIRAKTHO MAHAAMOHAATH LOKEYSMIN SAHAPRAVARTHATHEY.

LABDHVAAPI MAANAVANDEYHAM MOKSHAM NEYCHCHATHI KIMVACHAHA.

Meaning- Man who is deluded by material desires (as a result of previous karma) enjoys pleasures with his wife and children. Despite having attained the human body as a result of past good karma, man still does not aspire for salvation. What to say about such a state of man?

MOORKHAANAAMHI BHAVEYDITHDHAM DHIKTHEYSHAAM JANMANISHPHALAM.
