प्रसक्ताः कामभोगेषु पतन्ति नरकेऽशुचौ।।16.16।।
।।16.16।।कामनाओंके कारण तरहतरहसे भ्रमित चित्तवाले? मोहजालमें अच्छी तरहसे फँसे हुए तथा पदार्थों और भोगोंमें अत्यन्त आसक्त रहनेवाले मनुष्य भयङ्कर नरकोंमें गिरते हैं।
The demoniac completely controlled by maya the imperceptible bewilderment of illusion delude themselves by thinking that they are capable of accomplishing anything merely by their own brains and might. The demoniac think they are independent and not dependent upon any Supreme Being even if it does at all exist. In this way they are full of anxiety which tempestuously buffets them about by foolish, greedy thoughts such as this is mine, that to will soon be mine, I want this, I want that, this I shall do and that I will also do, etc., etc. In this way by their very own minds they are caught in the web of illusion and pursuing their lust for sense gratification they are totally bereft of sound judgement, discrimination and moral conduct. Lord Krishna confirms that beyond material nature, unseen and unperceived, death is waiting very patiently for the allotted time to snatch them away from all they covet and force them to suffer their karma or reactions to their unrighteous sinful actions in the darkest of hells.
