1st Chapter 42nd Sloka

सङ्करो नरकायैव कुलघ्नानां कुलस्य च ।
पतन्ति पितरो ह्येषां लुप्तपिण्डोदकक्रियाः ॥४२॥

saṅkaro narakāyaiva kulaghnānāṃ kulasya ca |
patanti pitaro hyeṣāṃ luptapiṇḍodakakriyāḥ ||42||

सङ्करः 1/1 नरकाय 4/1 एव 0 कुलघ्नानाम् 6/3 कुलस्य 6/1 0
पतन्ति III/3 पितरः 1/3 हि 0 एषाम् 6/3 लुप्तपिण्डोदकक्रियाः 1/3 ॥४२॥

·         सङ्करः [saṅkaraḥ] = confusion = सङ्कर (m.) + 1/1
·         नरकाय [narakāya] = the world of pain = नरक (m./n.) + 4/1
·         एव [eva] = indeed = अव्ययम्
·         कुलघ्नानाम् [kulaghnānām] = of the destroyers of the family = कुलघ्न (m.) + सम्बन्धे to नरकाय 6/3
·         कुलस्य [kulasya] = of the family = कुल (m.) + सम्बन्धे to नरकाय 6/1
·         [ca] = and = अव्ययम्
·         पतन्ति [patanti] = they fall = पत् (1P) to fall + लट्/कर्तरि/III/3
·         पितरः [pitaraḥ] = ancestors = पितृ (m.) + कर्तरि to पतन्ति 1/3
·         हि [hi] = indeed = अव्ययम्
·         एषाम् [eṣām] = of these [family and the destroyers of the family] = एतद् (m.) + सम्बन्धे to पितरः6/3
·         लुप्तपिण्डोदकक्रियाः [luptapiṇḍodakakriyāḥ] = ones who are denied of their post death rituals = लुप्तपिण्डोदकक्रिय (m.) + adj. to पितरः 1/3
                   

Sentence 1:
सङ्करः 1/1 कुलस्य 6/1 कुलघ्नानाम् 6/3 0 नरकाय 4/1 एव 0 [भवति]
Confusion (सङ्करः 1/1), indeed (एव 0), will result in the world of pain (नरकाय 4/1 [भवति]) for the family (कुलस्य 6/1) and ( 0) the destroyer of the family (कुलघ्नानाम् 6/3).

Sentence 2:
एषाम् 6/3 लुप्तपिण्डोदकक्रियाः 1/3 पितरः 1/3 हि 0 पतन्ति III/3 ॥४२॥
The ancestors (पितरः 1/3) of these people (एषाम् 6/3), being denied of their post death rituals (लुप्तपिण्डोदकक्रियाः 1/3), will indeed (हि 0) fall (पतन्ति III/3).
