Bhagavad Gita Chapter 1 Verse 42

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 1 श्लोक 42

सङ्करो नरकायैव कुलघ्नानां कुलस्य च।
पतन्ति पितरो ह्येषां लुप्तपिण्डोदकक्रियाः।।1.42।।

हिंदी अनुवाद - स्वामी तेजोमयानंद

।।1.42।।वह वर्णसंकर कुलघातियों को और कुल को नरक में ले जाने का कारण बनता है। पिण्ड और जलदान की क्रिया से वंचित इनके पितर भी नरक में गिर जाते हैं।

Kumara Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

In the previous verse the effects of the intermixture of castes as described in the Vedic scriptures regarding the ancestors has been determined. Now Arjuna describes the misery experienced for those who are responsible for causing this intermixture of castes beginning with dosair etaih. Due to these evils the essential duties prescribed in the Vedic scriptures for the four castes which are the authorised and proven means leading humanity to the highest good and which are faithfully instructed by holy sages and spiritual masters are all forsaken.
