Rendering based on ALkoNdavilli gOvindhAchArya swAmy’s English translation of gIthA bhAshyam
Dambha = Ostentation = A display of virtue, or pretentious parade of righteous acts to invite flattery.
Darpa = Pride = That unnatural exultation arising from experiencing sense-objects, depriving one (afterwards) of the discretion to do what is right and avoid what is wrong.
Abhimānaḥ = Conceit or self-opinion of one’s own importance unwarranted by either learning or high birth etc.
Krodha = Ire = Disposition of the mind to cause others suffering, and enjoy that as one’s own fruit (or pleasure).
Ajñānam = Ignorance = The being destitute of understanding as to what is duty and what is not; and unacquaintance with truths great and small.
These constitute the character of him who is born of the Non-divine kind.
The Non-divine (=āsuri= demoniac = vile) are those who rebel against Bhagavān’s Laws or Commands.
