हतविधिपरिपाकः केन वा लङ्घनीयः

अयममृतनिधानं नायकोऽप्यौषधीनां
शतभिषगनुजातः शम्भुमूर्ध्नोऽवतंसः।
विरहयति न चैनं राजयक्ष्मा शशाङ्कं
हतविधिपरिपाकः केन वा लङ्घनीयः॥
ayamamṛtanidhānaṁ nāyako'pyauṣadhīnāṁ
śatabhiṣaganujātaḥ śambhumūrdhno'vataṁsaḥ|
virahayati na cainaṁ rājayakṣmā śaśāṅkaṁ
hatavidhiparipākaḥ kena vā laṅghanīyaḥ||

नीतिशतकं भर्त्रुहरेः
nītiśatakaṁ bhartruhareḥ


The moon is the abode of ambrosia (amrutha which gives immortality to all),  he is the master of all medicinal plants,  the stellar constellaton of hundred doctors (shathabishak) always follows him as if a moving superspeciality hospital,  and above all he is worn as an ornament in the matted locks of Lord Shiva who is famed to have defeated death itself  but in spite of all these  facilities, the moon is attached by  a fatal disease, and advanced variety of tuberculosis (rajaykshma).  The decisions of fate are immutable and no one can oppose or overcome it.

The story is that the moon is married to all the stars from aswini to revathi but he started showing special favors to  rohini  and the other sisters went and complained to their father the Dakshaprajapathi...and he cursed moon to have the killer disease and later on the scheme was modified to the cycle that he will start catching the diseas on full moon day, get emaciated day by day and disppear on new moon day and then will be resurrected to grow from a lean crescent to the full moon in the next fortnight, just to start the cycle once again. This is an astronomical phenomenon but the master has used it effectively to stress a very valid point.
