कामः क्रोधश्च लोभश्च देहे तिष्ठन्ति तस्कराः।
ज्ञानरत्नापहाराय तस्मात् जाग्रत जाग्रत॥३

kāmaḥ krodhaśca lobhaśca dehe tiṣṭhanti taskarāḥ|
jñānaratnāpahārāya tasmāt jāgrata jāgrata||3

भावार्थ

Shloka Translation's

Desire, anger, greed, attachment, pride, jealousy — these dacoits are residing within your own body. They are not outside. They are residing as fifth column enemies within you. And, why are they there? To loot you of the Jnana-Ratna, to rob you of the precious gem of spiritual wisdom or atma-jnana, to loot you and deprive you of the precious gem of Self-awareness and make you forget your Self and weep and wail and be in ignorance. In order to deprive you of this jewel of atma-jnana, they are there. Therefore, oh man, oh Sadhak, Jagrata, Jagrata. Beware, beware. In this way, from the submerged level of the chitta or the deep within, various samskaras and vasna are brought into activity.

To burgle away the gem of knowledge and discretion earned by you, the wily thieves lust, rage and avariciousness are lurking around you biding for their time.
