 One addicted to vices does nol accomplish tasks.


Even one with a fourfold army is destroyed if he is a slave of the  senses.


One addicted to gambling does not accomplish anything.


The ruler addicted to hunting loses his righteousness and wealth.


 Desire for wealth is not considered a vice.


 The lust-ridden (ruler) cannot perform his task.


Sting of words is stronger than the burning of fire.
