Seventeenth Chapter

arjuna uvāca
ye śāstravidhimutsṛjya yajante śraddhayānvitāḥ
teṣāṁ niṣṭhā tu kā kṛṣṇa sattvamāho rajastamaḥ

Arjuna said:
O' Krishna, those who perform worship (to gods etc.) with faith but disregarding the ordinance of scriptures, what is their state of devotion, is it Sattvic, (goodness), Rajasic ( passion)  or Tamasic (ignorance)?

The conduct, sentiments and thoughts of persons with Divine traits are of 'Sattvic' nature and the conduct, sentiments and thoughts of persons of demoniacal type are 'Rajasic-tamas' nature. The person's state of devotion is according to his conduct, sentiments and thoughts.

From Gita Prabodhini  by Swami Ramsukhdasji
