girah srutayah puspinya
madhu-gandhena bhurina
mathna conmathitatmanah
sammuhyantu hara-dvisah
girah—words; srutayah—of the Vedas; puspinyah—flowery; madhu-gandhena—with the scent of honey; bhurina—profuse; mathna—enchanting; ca—and; unmathita-atmanah—whose minds have become dull; sammuhyantu—let them remain attached; hara-dvisah—envious of Lord Siva.
May those who are envious of Lord Siva, being attracted by the flowery language of the enchanting Vedic promises, and who have thus become dull, always remain attached to fruitive activities.
The Vedic promises of elevation to higher planets for a better standard of materialistic life are compared to flowery language because in a flower there is certainly an aroma but that aroma does not last for a very long time. In a flower there is honey, but that honey is not eternal.
