karoti — performs; kāma — of material desires; vaśa — under the control; gaḥ — having gone; karmāṇi — fruitive activities; avijita — uncontrolled; indriyaḥ — whose senses; duḥkha — unhappiness; udarkāṇi — bringing as a future result; sampaśyan — seeing clearly; rajaḥ — of the mode of passion; vega — by the force; vimohitaḥ — bewildered.
One who does not control the material senses comes under the control of material desires and is thus bewildered by the strong waves of the mode of passion. Such a person executes material activities, although clearly seeing that the result will be future unhappiness.
