ahamkāraṁ balaṁ darpaṁ kāmaṁ krodhaṁ ca samśritāḥ
mām ātma-para-deheṣu pradviṣanto ’bhyasūyakāḥ
ahamkāraṁ -the ego(of the self)
balaṁ -strength in
darpaṁ – is the height of one’s pride
kāmaṁ -in love/lust
krodhaṁ- in anger
samśritāḥ -equally taking shelter to
mām – attain me
ātma-para-deheṣu -the soul-stranger-to the body
pradviṣanto ’bhyasūyakāḥ – is joyful in judging (pradvisanto) from fears of jealousy (bhya asuyakah)
The ego (of the self), the strength in is one’s height of pride in love/lust, anger also. Equally taking shelter to attain me. The soul stranger to the body, is joyful in judging from fears of jealousy.
We know this to be one of many truths of how people are in this world, being strangers to the soul and judging in manners that show one’s insecurity.
