Bhagavad Gita Chapter 5 Verse 22

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 5 श्लोक 22

ये हि संस्पर्शजा भोगा दुःखयोनय एव ते।
आद्यन्तवन्तः कौन्तेय न तेषु रमते बुधः।।5.22।।

हिंदी अनुवाद - स्वामी रामसुख दास जी ( भगवद् गीता 5.22)

।।5.22।।क्योंकि हे कुन्तीनन्दन जो इन्द्रियों और विषयोंके संयोगसे पैदा होनेवाले भोग (सुख) हैं वे आदिअन्तवाले और दुःखके ही कारण हैं। अतः विवेकशील मनुष्य उनमें रमण नहीं करता।

English Translation of Sanskrit Commentary By Sri Shankaracharya's

5.22 Hi, since; bhogah, enjoyments; ye samsparsajah, that result from contact with objects, that arise from contact between the objects and the organs; are eva, verily; duhkha-yonayah, sources of sorrow, because they are creations of ignorance. It is certainly a matter of experience that physical and other sorrows are created by that itself. By the use of the word eva (verily), it is understood that, as it happens here in this world, so does it even in the other world. Realizing that there is not the least trace of happiness in the world, one should withdraw the organs from the objects which are comparable to a mirage. Not only are they sources of sorrow, they also adi-antavantah, have a beginning and an end. Adi (beginning) of enjoyments consists in the contact between objects and senses, and their end (anta), indeed, is the loss of that contact. Hence, they have a beginning and an end, they are impermanent, being present in the intervening moment. This is the meaning. (Therefore) O son of Kunti, budhah, the wise one, the discriminating person who has realized the Reality which is the supreme Goal; na ramate, does not delight; tesu, in them, in enjoyments. For delight in objects is seen only in very foolish beings, as for instance in animals etc. This extremely painful evil, which is opposed to the path of Bliss and is the source of getting all miseries, is difficult to resist. Therefore one must make the utmost effort to avoid it. Hence the Lord says:;

English Translation of Commentary - Dr. S. Sankaranarayan

5.22 Ye hi etc. He considers indeed as follows : All enjoyments born of the external objects are in the form of causes of misery; and even otherwise , they are impermanent.

English Translation of Ramanuja's Sanskrit Commentary

5.22 Those pleasures which result from the contact of sense objects with the senses, are the wombs of pain, i.e., have pain as their ultimate fruit They have a beginning and an end, i.e., they are seen to remain only for a brief period and the reaction that follows their cessation is painful. He who knows what they themselves are, i.e., know themselves as Atman, will not find pleasure in them.
