From Vanisource

His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


aśapan kupitā evaṁ
yuvāṁ vāsaṁ na cārhathaḥ
rajas-tamobhyāṁ rahite
pāda-mūle madhudviṣaḥ
pāpiṣṭhām āsurīṁ yoniṁ
bāliśau yātam āśv ataḥ


aśapan—cursed; kupitāḥ—being full of anger; evam—thus; yuvām—you two; vāsam—residence; na—not; ca—and; arhathaḥ—deserve; rajaḥ-tamobhyām—from passion and ignorance; rahite—free; pāda-mūle—at the lotus feet; madhu-dviṣaḥ—of Viṣṇu, the slayer of the Madhu demon; pāpiṣṭhām—most sinful; āsurīm—demoniac; yonim—to a womb; bāliśau—O you two fools; yātam—go; āśu—quickly hereafter; ataḥ—therefore.


Thus checked by the doorkeepers Jaya and Vijaya, Sanandana and the other great sages very angrily cursed them. "You two foolish doorkeepers," they said. "Being agitated by the material qualities of passion and ignorance, you are unfit to live at the shelter of Madhudviṣa's lotus feet, which are free from such modes. It would be better for you to go immediately to the material world and take your birth in a family of most sinful asuras."
