English Translation of Ramanuja's Sanskrit Commentary

16.4 Dambha or pomposity is the practice of Dharma for earning a reputation for righteousness. Arrogance is the elation caused by the pleasures of sense-objects and the conseent inability to discriminate between what ought to be done and what ought not to be done. Self-conceit is the estimation of oneself in a measure not warranted by ones education and birth. Wrath is the sense of antagonism causing injury to others. Rudeness is the nature of causing grief to Sadhus. Ignorance is incapacity to discriminate between hight and low forms of conduct and principles, and also between what ought to be done and what ought not to be. These are the alities that are found in one born for a demoniac destiny. Asuras are those who rel against the ?ndments of the Lord.
