षडेते नित्यदुःखिताः

ईर्षुर्धृणी नसन्तुष्टः क्रोधनः नित्यशङ्कितः।
परभग्योपजीवी च षडेते नित्यदुःखिताः॥
īrṣurdhṛṇī nasantuṣṭaḥ krodhanaḥ nityaśaṅkitaḥ|
parabhagyopajīvī ca ṣaḍete nityaduḥkhitāḥ||
The envious, the malicious, the angry, the one who is ever-suspicious,
and those who thrive on others’ fortunes – these six are always miserable.
