Bhagavad Gita - Chapter II: Verse - 44

Desire filled minds
Kamaatmanas Swarga Paraha Janma Karma Phalapradam
Kriya Vishesha Bahulam Bhogaishwarya Gatim Prati

Such people who swear by the Vedas have a mind filled with desires. They think that heaven is the highest goal, not realising that the fruit of such thoughts and action is re-birth. Towards achieving these ends, they describe many ritualistic details that are aimed at opulence, sensual pleasures and power. - Swahilya Shambhavi.

Bhagavad Gita : Chapter II Verse 42

The foolish ones

Yam Imam Pushpitam Vacham Pravadantya Vipaschithaha
Vedavada Ratah Partha Nanyadasteeti Vadinaha
By whatever florid texts and words one swears by, the foolish ones argue that the Vedas contain only ways to achieve material bliss. (They ignore the spiritual essence of the Vedas.) - Swahilya Shambhavi.
