TEXT 67

yad asau śāstram ullaṅghya
svaira-cāry ati-garhitaḥ
avartata ciraṁ kālam
aghāyur aśucir malāt


SYNONYMS

yat—because; asau—this brāhmaṇa; śāstram ullaṅghya—transgressing the laws of śāstra; svaira-cārī—acting irresponsibly; ati-garhitaḥ—very much condemned; avartata—passed; ciram kālam—a long time; agha-āyuḥ—whose life was full of sinful activities; aśuciḥ—unclean; malāt—because of impurity.


TRANSLATION

This brāhmaṇa irresponsibly spent his long lifetime transgressing all the rules and regulations of the holy scripture, living extravagantly and eating food prepared by a prostitute. Therefore he is full of sins. He is unclean and is addicted to forbidden activities.


PURPORT

Food prepared by an unclean, sinful man or woman, especially a prostitute, is extremely infectious. Ajāmila ate such food, and therefore he was subject to be punished by Yamarāja.
