SB 8.21.33

From Vanisource

His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


vṛthā manorathas tasya
dūraḥ svargaḥ pataty adhaḥ
yo 'rthinaṁ vipralambhate


vṛthā—without any good result; manorathaḥ—mental concoction; tasya—of him; dūraḥ—far away; svargaḥ—elevation to the higher planetary system; patati—falls down; adhaḥ—to a hellish condition of life; pratiśrutasya—things promised; adānena—being unable to give; yaḥ—anyone who; arthinam—a beggar; vipralambhate—cheats.


Far from being elevated to the heavenly planets or fulfilling one's desire, one who does not properly give a beggar what he has promised falls down to a hellish condition of life.
