Bhagavad Gita Chapter 16 Verse 10

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 16 श्लोक 10

काममाश्रित्य दुष्पूरं दम्भमानमदान्विताः।
मोहाद्गृहीत्वासद्ग्राहान्प्रवर्तन्तेऽशुचिव्रताः।।16.10।।

हिंदी अनुवाद - स्वामी तेजोमयानंद

।।16.10।। दम्भ? मान और मद से युक्त कभी न पूर्ण होने वाली कामनाओं का आश्रय लिये? मोहवश मिथ्या धारणाओं को ग्रहण करके ये अशुद्ध संकल्पों के लोग जगत् में कार्य करते हैं।।

Brahma Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Lord Krishna is reiterating that normal desires are very difficult to satisfy while emphasizing that degraded and degenerative desires are even more difficult to fulfill. Such vast undertakings and prodigious schemes which are so difficult to accomplish create great distress and frustration in the attempt.
