na—not; asmat-kula—our family; ucitam—befitting; tāta—my dear son; karma—action; etat—this; sat—by authorities on religion; vigarhitam—forbidden; vadhaḥ—the killing; yat—which; upadevānām—of the Yakṣas; ārabdhaḥ—was undertaken; te—by you; akṛta-enasām—of those who are sinless.
My dear son, the killing of the sinless Yakṣas which you have undertaken is not at all approved by authorities, and it does not befit our family, which is supposed to know the laws of religion and irreligion.
