<< Chapter 16 Verse 14

Simple

āḍhyo ’bhijanavān asmi
ko ’nyo ’sti sadṛśo mayā
yakṣye dāsyāmi modiṣya
ity ajñāna-vimohitāḥ

‘(Say they): “Rich and well-born I am; who else is there like unto me? I will sacrifice, I will give, I will be merry.” Thus are they infatuated by ignorance.’

“By myself I am rich, and by myself I am born in a good race. Who else is there in this world like me, who has by dint of his own personal exertion secured every happiness for himself?”

I myself will perform sacrifices, I myself will grant largess, I will myself be merry; no need of Īśvara’s help or grace!!”. So do the ignorance-blinded think.
