|Canto 3: The Status Quo||Chapter 30: Description by Lord Kapila of Adverse Fruitive Activities|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 3.30.11
ārabdhāyāḿ punaḥ punaḥ
parārthe kurute spṛhām
vārtāyām — when his occupation; lupyamānāyām — is hampered; ārabdhāyām — undertaken; punaḥ punaḥ — again and again; lobha — by greed; abhibhūtaḥ — overwhelmed; niḥsattvaḥ — ruined; para-arthe — for the wealth of others; kurute spṛhām — he longs.
When he suffers reverses in his occupation, he tries again and again to improve himself, but when he is baffled in all attempts and is ruined, he accepts money from others because of excessive greed.
