yayā tu dharmakāmārthāndhṛtyā dhārayate'rjuna
prasaṅena phalākāṅkṣī dhṛtiḥ sā pārtha rājasī
That firmness, O Partha (Arjuna), by which, one holds fast to dharma (duty), wealth and pleasures, because of attachment and desire for reward, is Rājasika (of the mode of passion) firmness.
Man of Rajasika firmness performs his rightful duty only to satisfy various desires such as-- to enjoy worldly objects and to hoard wealth. Due to excessive attachment with world, whatever good actions the Rajasika person does, he has only one desire - to get comfort-pleasure, fame, respect etc., here in this world and also to enjoy pleasures in the higher worlds.
