रजसि प्रलयं गत्वा कर्मसङ्गिषु जायते।
तथा प्रलीनस्तमसि मूढयोनिषु जायते।।14.15।।
।।14.15।। रजोगुण के प्रवृद्ध काल में मृत्यु को प्राप्त होकर कर्मासक्ति वाले (मनुष्य) लोक में वह जन्म लेता है तथा तमोगुण के प्रवृद्धकाल में (मरण होने पर) मूढ़योनि में जन्म लेता है।।
Now Lord Krishna describes that when a jiva or embodied being dies while in raja guna or the mode of passion one takes birth among those who perform activities out of desire for rewards and having been born as such will endeavour mightily to accomplish works that would be rewarded by immense wealth and power even up unto the heavenly spheres. Similarly if one dies while under the influnce of tama guna or the mode of ignorance then such jivas will be born from the wombs of animals such as pigs and dogs where one would be completely incapacitated to perform any activity that would give any spiritual benefit.
