dīnāḥ straiṇāḥ kalau narāḥ
pitṛ — their fathers; bhrātṛ — brothers; suhṛt — well-wishing friends; jñātīn — and immediate relatives; hitvā — giving up; saurata — based on sexual relationships; sauhṛdāḥ — their conception of friendship; nanāndṛ — with their wives' sisters; śyāla — and wives' brothers; saḿvādāḥ — associating regularly; dīnāḥ — wretched; straiṇāḥ — effeminate; kalau — in Kali-yuga; narāḥ — the men.
In Kali-yuga men will be wretched and controlled by women. They will reject their fathers, brothers, other relatives and friends and will instead associate with the sisters and brothers of their wives. Thus their conception of friendship will be based exclusively on sexual ties.
