The word svapnam means slumber inferring slothfulness. Madam is the delusion of enjoying sense objects. The dharmedah or unintelligent fools do not oppose their mind from allowing their senses to buffet then hither and thither in pursuit of sense gratification. They even sanction such treatment to satisfy their desires. The terms bhayam or dread, sokam or grief and nisadam or dejection are the by products of this delusion and those who occupy their time and energy and waste their invaluable human life as such Lord Krishna confirms are indispensably situated in tama guna.
