tan  anayadhvam  asato  vimukhan  mukunda-



padaravinda-makaranda-rasad ajasram,



niskincanaih  paramahamsa-kulair asangair



justad  grhe  niraya-vartmani  baddha-trsnan.



tan  =  them;

anayadhvam  =  bring before me;

asatah  =  nondevotees (those who have not taken to Lord's consciousness);

vimukhan  =  who have turned;

mukunda  =  of Mukunda, the Supreme Personality of Godhead;

pada-aravinda  =  of the lotus feet;

makaranda  =  of the honey;

rasat  =  the taste;

ajasram  =  continuously;

niskincanaih  =  by persons completely free from material attachment;

paramahamsa-kulaih  =  by the paramahamsas, the most exalted personalities;

asangaih  =  who have no material attachment;

justat  =  which is enjoyed;

grhe  =  to household life;

niraya-vartmani  =  the path leading to hell;

baddha-trsnan  =  whose desires are bound.



Paramahamsas are exalted persons who have no taste for material enjoyment and who drink the honey of the Lord’s lotus feet. My dear servants, bring to me for punishment only persons who are averse to the taste of that honey, who do not associate with paramahaṁsas and who are attached to family life and worldly enjoyment, which form the path to hell.


After warning the Yamadutas not to approach the devotees, Yamaraja now indicates who is to be brought before him. 

He specifically advises the Yamadutas to bring him the materialistic persons who are attached to household life merely for sex. 



As stated in Srimad-Bhagavatam  :  

"yan maithunadi-grhamedhi-sukham hi tuccham " : [SB 7.9.45] 

people are attached to household life for sex only. 

They are always harassed in many ways by their material engagements, and their only happiness is that after working very hard all day, at night they sleep and indulge in sex. 



"Nidraya  hriyate naktam  vyavayena  ca  va  vayah" : [SB 2.1.3] 

at night, materialistic householders sleep or indulge in sex life. 



"Diva  carthehaya  rajan  kutumba-bharanena  va": 

during the day they are busy trying to find out where money is, and if they get money they spend it to maintain their families. 
Yamaraja specifically advises his servants to bring these persons to him for punishment and not to bring the devotees, who always lick the honey at the lotus feet of the Lord, who are equal to everyone, and who try to preach Lord's  consciousness because of sympathy for all living entities. 


Devotees are not liable to punishment by Yamaraja, but persons who have no information of Lord's  consciousness cannot be protected by their material life of so-called family enjoyment. 


Srīmad-Bhagavatam says (2.1.4) :
 


"dehapatya-kalatradisv  atma-sainyesv  asatsv api,


tesham  pramatto  nidhanam   pasyann  api  na  pasyati."


Such persons complacently believe that their nations, communities or families can protect them, unaware that all such fallible soldiers will be destroyed in due course of time. 

In conclusion, one should try to associate with persons who engage in devotional service twenty-four hours a day.
