184-Loka Sahavaasa- nodu noduta loka sahavaasa saakahudu..

English Translation:     “Our interest in this world decreases eventually over time. A garland of flowers will not remain fresh for ever; it wilts. Just like that, a beautiful body may be hiding a itch inside. The world is also like that. It looks beautiful as long as we do not scratch the surface and dig deep. One must learn to enjoy the world by superficially glancing over it.” – Mankutimma
