प्रतिश्रुतस्यादानेन योऽर्थिनं विप्रलम्भते ॥ ३३ ॥
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.
