subhānupassiṃ viharantaṃ indriyesu asaṃvutaṃ
bhojanamhi cāmattaññuṃ kusītaṃ hīnavīriyaṃ
taṃ ve pasahati māro vāto rukkhaṃ va dubbalaṃ
Just as a storm throws down a weak tree, so does Mara overpower the man who lives for the pursuit of pleasures, who is uncontrolled in his senses, immoderate in eating, indolent, and dissipated.
