posted in: English

 

दोषैरेतैः कुलघ्न‍ानां वर्णसङ्करकारकैः ।

उत्साद्यन्ते जातिधर्माः कुलधर्माश्च शाश्वताः ॥ ४२ ॥

doṣair etaiḥ kula-ghnānāṁ
varṇa-saṅkara-kārakaiḥ
utsādyante jāti-dharmāḥ
kula-dharmāś ca śāśvatāḥ

Synonyms
doṣaiḥ — by such faults; etaiḥ — all these; kula-ghnānām — of the destroyers of the family;

varṇa-saṅkara — of unwanted children; kārakaiḥ — which are causes;

utsādyante — are devastated; jāti-dharmāḥ — community projects;

kula-dharmāḥ — family traditions; ca — also; śāśvatāḥ — eternal.

 

Translation
By the evil deeds of those who destroy the family tradition and thus give rise to unwanted children, all kinds of community projects and family welfare activities are devastated.

 

Purport
Community projects for the four orders of human society, combined with family welfare activities, as they are set forth by the institution of sanātana-dharma, or varṇāśrama-dharma, are designed to enable the human being to attain his ultimate salvation. Therefore, the breaking of the sanātana-dharma tradition by irresponsible leaders of society brings about chaos in that society, and consequently people forget the aim of life – Viṣṇu. Such leaders are called blind, and persons who follow such leaders are sure to be led into chaos.
