PURPORT
The word ucchṛṅkhala, meaning "whimsical," is significant in this verse. In Bhagavad-gītā (16.23), Lord Kṛṣṇa Himself says:
yaḥ śāstra-vidhim utsṛjya
vartate kāma-kārataḥ
na sa siddhim avāpnoti
na sukhaṁ na parāṁ gatim
If one acts whimsically and does not follow the śāstric principles, he will never attain perfection, happiness or the spiritual world.
