आत्मसंभाविताः स्तब्धा धनमानमदान्विताः । यजन्ते नामयज्ञैस्ते दम्भेनाविधिपूर्वकम् ॥ १६.१७ ॥


वे अपने आपको ही श्रेष्ट मानने वाले घमण्डी पुरुष धन और मान के मद से युक्त्त होकर केवल नाम मात्र के यज्ञों द्वारा पाखण्ड से शास्त्र विधि रहित भजन करते हैं |

They perform the sacrificial rituals for the sake of show disregarding all the divine laws of sacrifice.
