1. 6

    द्वौ भूतसर्गौ लोकेऽस्मिन्दैव आसुर एव च । दैवो विस्तरशः प्रोक्त आसुरं पार्थ मे श‍ृणु ॥ १६-६॥

    O Parth ( Arjun )! There are two types of beings in this world, the divine and the demoniacal; the divine has been described elaborately. Hear about the demoniacal from Me.

  2. 7

    प्रवृत्तिं च निवृत्तिं च जना न विदुरासुराः । न शौचं नापि चाचारो न सत्यं तेषु विद्यते ॥ १६-७॥

    The demoniacal do not know what to do and what to refrain from; neither purity, nor right conduct nor truth exist in them.

  3. 8

    असत्यमप्रतिष्ठं ते जगदाहुरनीश्वरम् । अपरस्परसम्भूतं किमन्यत्कामहैतुकम् ॥ १६-८॥

    They say that the world is unreal, it has no basis, it is without Ishwar ( God ). It is born of mutual union brought about by passion! What other (cause can there be)?

  4. 9

    एतां दृष्टिमवष्टभ्य नष्टात्मानोऽल्पबुद्धयः । प्रभवन्त्युग्रकर्माणः क्षयाय जगतोऽहिताः ॥ १६-९॥

    Holding this view, these ruined souls of small intellect and fierce deeds, come forth as the enemies of the world for its destruction.

  5. 10

    काममाश्रित्य दुष्पूरं दम्भमानमदान्विताः । मोहाद्गृहीत्वासद्ग्राहान्प्रवर्तन्तेऽशुचिव्रताः ॥ १६-१०॥

    Filled with insatiable desires, full of hypocrisy, pride and arrogance, holding evil ideas through delusion, they work with impure resolves.
