Verse:
mūḍhagrāheṇātmano yatpīḍayā kriyate tapaḥ | 

parasyotsādanārthaṃ vā tattāmasamudāhṛtam ||

मूढग्राहेणात्मनो यत्पीडया क्रियते तपः ।

 परस्योत्सादनार्थं वा तत्तामसमुदाहृतम् ॥


Translation: That austerity which is practised with self-torture, out of some foolish notion, for the purpose of destroying another, is declared to be TAMASIC.
