Śrī Śukadeva Gosvāmī said: King Dhṛtarāṣṭra became blind under the influence of impious desires to nourish his dishonest sons, and thus he set fire to the lacquer house to burn his fatherless nephews, the Pāṇḍavas.

Śrī Śukadeva Gosvāmī dijo: El rey Dhṛtarāṣṭra, cegado por la influencia de los deseos impíos de nutrir a sus deshonestos hijos, prendió fuego a la casa de laca para quemar a sus sobrinos huérfanos de padre, los Pāṇḍavas.

Dhṛtarāṣṭra was blind from birth, but his blindness in committing impious activities to support his dishonest sons was a greater blindness than his physical lack of eyesight. The physical lack of sight does not bar one from spiritual progress. But when one is blind spiritually, even though physically fit, that blindness is dangerously detrimental to the progressive path of human life.

SIGNIFICADO: Dhṛtarāṣṭra era ciego de nacimiento, pero la ceguera por la cual cometía actividades impías para respaldar a sus deshonestos hijos era una ceguera mayor que su carencia física de vista. La carencia física de vista no excluye del progreso espiritual. Pero cuando alguien es ciego espiritualmente, aunque sea apto físicamente, esa ceguera va en peligroso detrimento del sendero progresivo de la vida humana.
