|Chapter 18||Final Revelations of the Ultimate Truth||Verse 27|
Rudra Vaisnava Sampradaya:
One who performs actions with an obsession to profit, who desires only to reap rewards, who is covetous of others possessions. Who is greedy and malevolent, enacting unrighteous acts against others for material gain including killing. Who is unclean internally and externally. Who is elated by success but despondent in failure. Such a one is irrevocably situated in raja guna the mode of passion.
Brahma Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Sri Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Now Lord Krishna describes the nature of one performing activities in raja guna the mode of passion. One who is ragi zealously ambitious in seeking fame, power, wealth, etc. One who is prepsuh always hankering for recompense and reward. One who is asucih or impure and greedy, envious and unrighteous causing injury to others by mental and physical cruelty. Such a one who is never in equipoise, who rejoices at success but is depressed by failure is indisputably known to be situated in raja guna.
Kumara Vaisnava Sampradaya:
One who is attached to actions due to craving for rewards, who is impelled by sense gratification, who is envious of others, who is greedy, unrighteous and prone to cruelty from an oppressive nature inhibiting the welfare of others. Who is joyful gaining benefit but sorrowful at incurring loss. Such a one is undeniably situated in raja guna the mode of passion.
