yada devesu vedesu
gosu vipresu sadhusu
dharme mayi ca vidvesah
sa va asu vinasyati
yada—when; devesu—unto the demigods; vedesu—unto the Vedic scriptures; gosu—unto the cows; vipresu—unto the brahmanas; sadhusu—unto the saintly persons; dharme—unto religious principles; mayi—unto Me, the Supreme Personality of Godhead; ca—and; vidvesah—envious; sah—such a person; vai—indeed; asu—very soon; vinasyati—is vanquished.
When one is envious of the demigods, who represent the Supreme Personality of Godhead, of the Vedas, which give all knowledge, of the cows, brahmanas, Vaisnavas and religious principles, and ultimately of Me, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, he and his civilization will be vanquished without delay.
