Srimad Bhagavatam Canto-04, Chapter-02, Text-23-24
buddhya parabhidhyayinya
vismrtatma-gatih pasuh
stri-kamah so ’stv atitaram
dakso basta-mukho ’cirat

Translation by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
Daksa has accepted the body as all in all. Therefore, since he has forgotten the visnu-pada, or visnu-gati, and is attached to sex life only, within a short time he will have the face of a goat.

SB 4.2.24
vidya-buddhir avidyayam
karmamayyam asau jadah
samsarantv iha ye camum
anu sarvavamaninam

Translation by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
Those who have become as dull as matter by cultivating materialistic education and intelligence are nesciently involved in fruitive activities. Such men have purposely insulted Lord Siva. May they continue in the cycle of repeated birth and death.

Purport by His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada:
The three curses mentioned above are sufficient to make one as dull as stone, void of spiritual knowledge and preoccupied with materialistic education, which is nescience. After uttering these curses, Nandisvara then cursed the brahmanas to continue in the cycle of birth and death because of their supporting Daksa in blaspheming Lord Siva.
