Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.24.11
ya enaḿ visṛjed dharmaḿ
kāmād dveṣād bhayāl lobhāt
sa vai nāpnoti śobhanam
yaḥ — anyone who; enam — this; visṛjet — rejects; dharmam — the religious principle; paramparya — from traditional authority; āgatam — received; naraḥ — a person; kāmāt — because of lust; dveṣāt — because of enmity; bhayāt — because of fear; lobhāt — or because of greed; saḥ — he; vai — certainly; na āpnoti — cannot achieve; śobhanam — auspiciousness.
This religious principle is based on sound tradition. Anyone who rejects it out of lust, enmity, fear or greed will certainly fail to achieve good fortune.
If a person neglects his religious duties because of lust, envy, fear or greed, his life will never be brilliant or perfect.
