Shri Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Lord Krishna now describes what is indicative of passion with the following words. The word lobha means greed, avarice, parsimony regarding wealth. The word pravritih means restlessness with no specific purpose or reason. The word arambhah means engaging in fruitive activities. The word asamah means agitation of the senses. The word spriha means craving for sense gratification. All of these qualities manifest when raja guna or the mode of passion is predominant.
