Bhagavad Gita Chapter 16 Verse 23

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 16 श्लोक 23

यः शास्त्रविधिमुत्सृज्य वर्तते कामकारतः।
न स सिद्धिमवाप्नोति न सुखं न परां गतिम्।।16.23।।

हिंदी अनुवाद - स्वामी तेजोमयानंद

।।16.23।। जो पुरुष शास्त्रविधि को त्यागकर अपनी कामना से प्रेरित होकर ही कार्य करता है? वह न पूर्णत्व की सिद्धि प्राप्त करता है? न सुख और न परा गति।।

Kumara Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

The word sastra refers exclusively to the Vedic scriptures. Vidhi means the injunctions and ordinances within them. The Vedic scriptures are the Supreme Lord Krishnas mandates. Whosoever foolishly abandons these instructions and utsrjya or transgresses the injunctions and ordinances to drift whimsically wherever their desires aimlessly take them will never achieve siddhi or perfection beyond mundane conceptions, never achieve sukham or happiness of any longevity or param gatim the supreme goal of human existence.
