ये हि संस्पर्शजा भोगा दुःखयोनय एव ते।
आद्यन्तवन्तः कौन्तेय न तेषु रमते बुधः।।5.22।।
।।5.22।। हे कौन्तेय (इन्द्रिय तथा विषयों के) संयोग से उत्पन्न होने वाले जो भोग हैं वे दुख के ही हेतु हैं क्योंकि वे आदिअन्त वाले हैं। बुद्धिमान् पुरुष उनमें नहीं रमता।।
The word samsparsaja means contact of the senses with their objects this precipitates anticipation for material pleasures which gives the illusion of happiness by such contact which actually are but a source of misery, pain and suffering. Lord Krishna is stating that because they are temporary having a time of beginning and a time of ending, contact with sense objects is shunned by those of spiritual intelligence who know such contacts are of a transitory nature.
