|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 73: Lord Kṛṣṇa Blesses the Liberated Kings|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.73.19
diṣṭyā vyavasitaḿ bhūpā
paśya unmādakaḿ nṛṇām
diṣṭyā — fortunate; vyavasitam — your resolve; bhūpāḥ — O kings; bhavantaḥ — you; ṛta — truthfully; bhāṣiṇaḥ — speaking; śrī — of opulence; aiśvarya — and power; mada — due to the intoxication; unnāham — lack of restraint; paśye — I see; unmādakam — maddening; nṛṇām — for human beings.
Fortunately you have come to the proper conclusion, my dear kings, and what you have spoken is true. I can see that human beings' lack of self-restraint, which arises from their intoxication with opulence and power, simply leads to madness.
