Kumara Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Lord Krishna explains that the mode of passion is known as rajas and is the cause of sexual desires known as carnal lust. From rajas arises trishna which is desire for all forms of sensual enjoyments through the medium of the senses such as seeing, hearing, tasting, smelling and feeling. Also arising from rajas is sanga or desire to be in the association of family, friends and loved ones. Thus rajas encourages desires and promotes activities to enjoy such desires which binds one to the reactions of merits or demerits and keeps the jiva or embodied being incessantly revolving in samsara or the perpetual cycle of birth and death. This propensity for constantly performing actions is inherent and also causes the jiva to take birth at a specific place with a particular body suitable to enjoy the rewards of previous actions. Hence by instigating the desire for performing works one is kept in bondage. In this way rajas is known to be the root cause of lust, sensual desires and attachment.
