ya etan martyam uddisya
bhagavaty apratidruhi
druhyaty ajnah prthag-drstis
tattvato vimukho bhavet
yah—who (Daksa); etat martyam—this body; uddisya—with reference to; bhagavati—to Siva; apratidruhi—who is not envious; druhyati—bears envy; ajnah—less intelligent persons; prthak-drstih—the vision of duality; tattvatah—from transcendental knowledge; vimukhah—bereft; bhavet—may become.
Anyone who has accepted Daksa as the most important personality and neglected Lord Siva because of envy is less intelligent and, because of visualizing in duality, will be bereft of transcendental knowledge.
The first curse by Nandisvara was that anyone supporting Daksa was foolishly identifying himself with the body, and therefore, because Daksa had no transcendental knowledge, supporting him would deprive one of transcendental knowledge. Daksa, Nandisvara said, identified himself with the body like other materialistic persons and was trying to derive all kinds of facilities in relationship with the body. He had excessive attachment for the body and, in relation to the body, with wife, children, home and other such things, which are different from the soul. Therefore Nandisvaraís curse was that anyone who supported Daksa would be bereft of transcendental knowledge of the soul and thus also be deprived of knowledge of the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
