who are attached to their reputations practice an evil way, full of intention.

who are attached to lust are no different from wicked people. While reciting the
scriptures, they even cast furtive glances; they are far from the Dao and are
wicked, everyday people.
who are attached to affection for family will definitely be burned, entangled,
and tormented by it. Pulled by the threads
of affection and plagued by them throughout their lives, they will find it
too late to regret at the end of their lives.
