jñātayo 'tithayas tasya
kāle kāmair anarcitaḥ
jñātayaḥ — the relatives; atithayaḥ — and guests; tasya — his; vāk-mātreṇa api — even by words; na arcitāḥ — were not shown respect; śūnya-avasathe — in his home deprived of religiosity and sense gratification; ātmā — himself; api — even; kāle — at the suitable times; kāmaiḥ — with sensory enjoyment; anarcitaḥ — not gratified.
In his home, devoid of religiosity and lawful sense gratification, the family members and guests were never properly respected, even with words. He would not even allow sufficient gratification for his own body at the suitable times.
