क्रोधो मृषावाद कथंकथा च + + + अतिमानो + + + + + + ।
ईर्ष्या च हिंसा परवादरोषणा ते आमगन्धा मनुजेषु ब्रह्म ।
येनावृता वारिवहा कुकूल आपायिका निर्वृता ब्रह्मलोकं ॥ १४ ॥

krodho mṛṣāvāda kathaṃkathā ca + + + atimāno + + + + + + |
īrṣyā ca hiṃsā paravādaroṣaṇā te āmagandhā manujeṣu brahma |
yenāvṛtā vārivahā kukūla āpāyikā nirvṛtā brahmalokaṃ || 14 ||

Anger and lies and doubt, meanness, overweening conceit and envy, jealousy, hate and words of wrath against others. These, O brahman, are the reeking odours whereby men are cloaked and enveloped, doomed to ways of woe in hell and shut out from Brahmas world. (14)
