One has to give account of oneâs actions to the state or to the agents of the Supreme Lord called the YamadÅ«tas. Irresponsible work is destructive because it destroys the regulative principles of scriptural injunction. It is often based on violence and is distressing to other living entities. Such irresponsible work is carried out in the light of oneâs personal experience. This is called illusion. And all such illusory work is a product of the mode of ignorance.
