Daily Bhagavad Gita Message  

Gita 18-39

yadagre cānubandhe ca sukhaṁ mohanamātmanaḥ
nidrālasyapramādotthaṁ tattāmasamudāhṛtam

The joy which deludes the self both at the beginning and at the end, and which is derived from sleep, indolence and heedlessness, is said to be Tāmasika.


When the Tāmasika disposition comes, heedlessness prevails, it envelopes the discriminative-knowledge of Sattvika and when the Tamasika sleep-indolence prevails, then it covers the illumination of Sattva Guna.  It means that with covering of discriminative-knowledge, heedlessness prevails and when illumination is covered then indolence and sleep take over. The Tamasika person derives pleasure from the three-- sleep, indolence and heedlessness.
The Tamasika  person is endowed with delusion (Gītā 14/8). Delusion is an obstacle to discrimination. Because of Tāmasīka disposition, discrimination is not aroused. Therefore the discrimination of a Tāmasīka person is lost due to delusion, because of that he does not see the beginning or the end.

From Gita Prabodhani in Hindi, by Swami Ramsukhdasji
