[gita-talk] Daily Bhagavad Gita Message (Gita 18-34)

 

  ||   Shree Hari    ||

Gita 18-34


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.


Comment:


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.



From Gita Prabodhani in Hindi, by Swami Ramsukhdasji
