Bhagavad Gita Chapter 14 Verse 17

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 14 श्लोक 17

सत्त्वात्सञ्जायते ज्ञानं रजसो लोभ एव च।
प्रमादमोहौ तमसो भवतोऽज्ञानमेव च।।14.17।।

हिंदी अनुवाद - स्वामी रामसुख दास जी ( भगवद् गीता 14.17)

।।14.17।।सत्त्वगुणसे ज्ञान और रजोगुणसे लोभ आदि ही उत्पन्न होते हैं तमोगुणसे प्रमाद? मोह एवं अज्ञान भी उत्पन्न होता है।

Rudra Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

The cause of the variation in results is being stated by Lord Krishna that from sattva guna or mode of goodness arises liminousity the results of which are knowledge and happiness. From raja guna or the mode of passion arises desires the results which are greed and suffering. From tama guna or the mode of ignorance comes illusion in the form of madness and delusion.

Brahma Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Shri Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

What Lord Krishna is stating about those situated in sattva guna or the mode of goodness increase their wisdom to fruition then atma tattva or realisation of the immortal soul becomes a reality. When raja guna or the mode of passion increases in intensity more and more avid appetites are incited to enjoy the fruits of. Similarly when tama guna or the mode of ignorance increases it manifests as perverted understanding and the proclivity to be influenced by wickedness from which more and more tama is begotten. Thus all developement of intelligence is blocked and neutralised.
