Lord Śiva was deep in meditation, but when Pārvatī agitated him for sense pleasure, he agreed to the proposal, and as a result Kārtikeya was born. When Haridāsa Ṭhākur was a young devotee of the Lord, he was similarly allured by the incarnation of Māyā Devī, but Haridāsa easily passed the test because of his unalloyed devotion to Lord Kṛṣṇa. As illustrated in the above-mentioned verse of Śrī Yāmunācārya, a sincere devotee of the Lord shuns all material sense enjoyment due to his higher taste for spiritual enjoyment in the association of the Lord. That is the secret of success. One who is not, therefore, in Kṛṣṇa consciousness, however powerful he may be in controlling the senses by artificial repression, is sure ultimately to fail, for the slightest thought of sense pleasure will agitate him to gratify his desires. #/p# #/div# please wait #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TEXT_62"#TEXT 62#/span##/h4# #div class="devanagari"# #dl##dd#ध्यायतो विषयान्पुंसः सङ्गस्तेषूपजायते ।#/dd# #dd#सङ्गात्सञ्जायते कामः कामात्क्रोधोऽभिजायते ॥६२॥#/dd##/dl# #/div# #div class="verse"# #dl##dd#dhyāyato viṣayān puṁsaḥ#/dd# #dd#saṅgas teṣūpajāyate#/dd# #dd#saṅgāt sañjāyate kāmaḥ#/dd# #dd#kāmāt krodho 'bhijāyate#/dd##/dl# #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="SYNONYMS"#SYNONYMS#/span##/h4# #div class="synonyms"# #p##i#dhyāyataḥ#/i#—while contemplating; #i#viṣayān#/i#—sense objects; #i#puṁsaḥ#/i#—of a person; #i#saṅgaḥ#/i#—attachment; #i#teṣu#/i#—in the sense objects; #i#upajāyate#/i#—develops; #i#saṅgāt#/i#—from attachment; #i#sañjāyate#/i#—develops; #i#kāmaḥ#/i#—desire; #i#kāmāt#/i#—from desire; #i#krodhaḥ#/i#—anger; #i#abhijāyate#/i#—becomes manifest. #/p# #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TRANSLATION"#TRANSLATION#/span##/h4# #div class="translation"# #p#While contemplating the objects of the senses, a person develops attachment for them, and from such attachment lust develops, and from lust anger arises. #/p# #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="PURPORT"#PURPORT#/span##/h4# #div class="purport"# #p#One who is not Kṛṣṇa conscious is subjected to material desires while contemplating the objects of the senses.
