kim u vyavahitāpatya-
bhṛtyāptā mamatāspadāḥ


kim u—what to speak of; vyavahita—separated; apatya—children; dāra—wives; agāra—residences; dhana—wealth; ādayaḥ—and so on; rājya—kingdoms; kośa—treasuries; gaja—big elephants and horses; amātya—ministers; bhṛtya—servants; āptāḥ—relatives; mamatā-āspadāḥ—false seats or abodes of intimate relationship ("mineness").


Since the body itself is ultimately meant to become stool or earth, what is the meaning of the paraphernalia related to the body, such as wives, residences, wealth, children, relatives, servants, friends, kingdoms, treasuries, animals and ministers? They are also temporary. What more can be said about this?
