Bhagavad Gita Chapter 16 Verse 9

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 16 श्लोक 9

एतां दृष्टिमवष्टभ्य नष्टात्मानोऽल्पबुद्धयः।
प्रभवन्त्युग्रकर्माणः क्षयाय जगतोऽहिताः।।16.9।।

हिंदी अनुवाद - स्वामी तेजोमयानंद

।।16.9।। इस दृष्टि का अवलम्बन करके नष्टस्वभाव के अल्प बुद्धि वाले? घोर कर्म करने वाले लोग जगत् के शत्रु (अहित चाहने वाले) के रूप में उसका नाश करने के लिए उत्पन्न होते हैं।।

Kumara Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Continuing further Lord Krishna gives some precise insights to the demoniac mentality. 1) Avastabhya means indiscriminately adopting erroneously as in the verse before. 2) Nasta-atmanah means devoid of any contact with their immortal soul. 3) Alpa-buddhaya means limited intellect due to being incognizant of the cognizant. 4) Ugra-karmanah means vile, heinous, horrendous activities destructive to all. Such creatures are demoniac and are a parasitic, virulent virus destabilising all creation.
