1. 6

    समृद्धकामो हीनो वा नारायणपरो मुनिः । नोत्सर्पेत न शुष्येत सरिद्भिरिव सागरः ।। ११-८-६ ।।

    During the rainy season the swollen rivers rush into the ocean, and during the dry summer the rivers, now shallow, severely reduce their supply of water; yet the ocean does not swell up during the rainy season, nor does it dry up in the hot summer. In the same way, a saintly devotee who has accepted the Supreme Personality of Godhead as the goal of his life sometimes will receive by providence great material opulence, and sometimes he will find himself materially destitute. However, such a devotee of the Lord does not rejoice in a flourishing condition, nor is he morose when poverty-stricken. ।। 11-8-6 ।।

  2. 7

    दृष्ट्वा स्त्रियं देवमायां तद्भावैरजितेन्द्रियः । प्रलोभितः पतत्यन्धे तमस्यग्नौ पतङ्गवत् ।। ११-८-७ ।।

    One who has failed to control his senses immediately feels attraction upon seeing a woman’s form, which is created by the illusory energy of the Supreme Lord. Indeed, when the woman speaks with enticing words, smiles coquettishly and moves her body sensuously, his mind is immediately captured, and thus he falls blindly into the darkness of material existence, just as the moth maddened by the fire rushes blindly into its flames. ।। 11-8-7 ।।

  3. 8

    योषिद्धिरण्याभरणाम्बरादिद्रव्येषु मायारचितेषु मूढः । प्रलोभितात्मा ह्युपभोगबुद्ध्या पतङ्गवन्नश्यति नष्टदृष्टिः ।। ११-८-८ ।।

    A foolish person with no intelligent discrimination is immediately aroused at the sight of a lusty woman beautifully decorated with golden ornaments, fine clothing and other cosmetic features. Being eager for sense gratification, such a fool loses all intelligence and is destroyed just like the moth who rushes into the blazing fire. ।। 11-8-8 ।।

  4. 9

    स्तोकं स्तोकं ग्रसेद्ग्रासं देहो वर्तेत यावता । गृहानहिंसन्नातिष्ठेद्वृत्तिं माधुकरीं मुनिः ।। ११-८-९ ।।

    A saintly person should accept only enough food to keep his body and soul together. He should go from door to door accepting just a little bit of food from each family. Thus he should practice the occupation of the honeybee. ।। 11-8-9 ।।

  5. 10

    अणुभ्यश्च महद्भ्यश्च शास्त्रेभ्यः कुशलो नरः । सर्वतः सारमादद्यात्पुष्पेभ्य इव षट्पदः ।। ११-८-१० ।।

    Just as the honeybee takes nectar from all flowers, big and small, an intelligent human being should take the essence from all religious scriptures. ।। 11-8-10 ।।
