Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.64.35
bhuktaḿ hanti tri-pūruṣam
prasahya tu balād bhuktaḿ
daśa pūrvān daśāparān
brahma-svam — a brāhmaṇa's property; duranujñātam — not given proper permission; bhuktam — enjoyed; hanti — destroys; tri — three; pūruṣam — persons; prasahya — by force; tu — but; balāt — resorting to external power (of the government, etc.); bhuktam — enjoyed; daśa — ten; pūrvān — previous; daśa — ten; aparān — subsequent.
If a person enjoys a brāhmaṇa's property without receiving due permission, that property destroys three generations of his family. But if he takes it by force or gets the government or other outsiders to help him usurp it, then ten generations of his ancestors and ten generations of his descendants are all destroyed.
According to Śrīla Śrīdhara Svāmī, tri-pūruṣa refers to oneself, one's sons and one's grandsons.
