Mundaka Upanisad 1.2.9

अविद्यायं बहुधा वर्तमाना वयं कृतार्था इत्यभिमन्यन्ति बालाः ।
यत्कर्मिणो न प्रवेदयन्ति रागात्तेनातुराः क्षीणलोकाश्च्यवन्ते ॥ ९ ॥

Mundaka Upanishad 1.2.9

avidyāyaṃ bahudhā vartamānā vayaṃ kṛtārthā ityabhimanyanti bālāḥ |
yatkarmiṇo na pravedayanti rāgāttenāturāḥ kṣīṇalokāścyavante || 9 ||

Mundaka Upanisad 1.2.9

9. The ignorant following the diverse ways of ignorance, flatter themselves that their objects have been accomplished. As these followers of karma do not learn the truth owing to their desire, they grow miserable and after the fruits of their karma are consumed, fall from Heaven.

9. Orang-orang bodoh yang mengikuti beragam cara ketidaktahuan, menyanjung diri sendiri bahwa benda-benda mereka telah tercapai. Karena para pengikut karma ini tidak belajar kebenaran karena keinginan mereka, mereka menjadi sengsara dan setelah buah-buah karma mereka dikonsumsi, jatuh dari Surga.

Shankara’s Commentary:

Com.—The ignorant acting diversely according to ignorance, flatter themselves that they have achieved what they should. This being so, the followers of karma do not learn the truth as they are assailed with the desire for the fruits of karma; they grow miserable for that reason and fall from heaven after the fruits of their karma are consumed.
