अनुबन्धं क्षयं हिंसामनपेक्ष्य च पौरुषम् |

मोहादारभ्यते कर्म यतत्तामसमुच्यते ||

anubandhaṁ kṣhayaṁ hinsām anapekṣhya cha pauruṣham
mohād ārabhyate karma yat tat tāmasam uchyate



जो कर्म परिणाम, हानि, हिंसा और सामर्थ्य को न विचारकर केवल अज्ञान से आरंभ किया जाता है, वह तामस कहा जाता है॥25॥


That action is declared to be in the mode of ignorance, which is begun out of delusion, without thought to one’s own ability, and disregarding consequences, loss, and injury to others.
