yat—because; asau—this brahmana; sastram ullanghya—transgressing the laws of sastra; svaira-cari—acting irresponsibly; ati-garhitah—very much condemned; avartata—passed; ciram kalam—a long time; agha-ayuh—whose life was full of sinful activities; asucih—unclean; malat—because of impurity.
This brahmana irresponsibly spent his long lifetime transgressing all the rules and regulations of the holy scripture, living extravagantly and eating food prepared by a prostitute. Therefore he is full of sins. He is unclean and is addicted to forbidden activities.
Food prepared by an unclean, sinful man or woman, especially a prostitute, is extremely infectious. Ajamila ate such food, and therefore he was subject to be punished by Yamaraja.
