भगवद् गीता अध्याय 16 श्लोक 11

कामोपभोगपरमा एतावदिति निश्िचताः।।16.11।।

हिंदी अनुवाद - स्वामी तेजोमयानंद

।।16.11।। मरणपर्यन्त रहने वाली अपरिमित चिन्ताओं से ग्रस्त और विषयोपभोग को ही परम लक्ष्य मानने वाले ये आसुरी लोग इस निश्चित मत के होते हैं कि इतना ही (सत्य? आनन्द) है।।

Kumara Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Although death is waiting patiently for their demise at any moment; to carry them off to hellish worlds of great suffering; Lord Krishna explains that the demoniac are so involved in the deception of their material manipulations for planetary power and control of planetary wealth which they amass to the maximum that they become oblivious to the existence of a higher reality. The demoniac are deceived in the vastness of their own schemes and undertakings which consumes all of their time as they are constantly endeavouring to keep their power intact. Simultaneously the demoniac are pursuing their lusts for sense gratification with full power imagining that it constitutes the apex of success as the highest ambition of all existence. The demoniac are so completely deluded that they believe that enjoying the objects of the senses is the final goal of all hopes and dreams with no conception more advanced than this. In this way they deceive and fully shackle themselves in bondage by the illusion of their own hopes and expectations which keeps them bound inexorably in perdition.
