English Translation of Ramanuja's Sanskrit Commentary

18.27 The passionate doer is one who aspires for fame; who seeks the fruits of his acts is one who longs for the fruits of his acts; the greedy is he who does not spend the wealth reired for the act; the harmful is one, who while acting, hurts others; the impure, is one who lacks the purity reired for the act; who is moved by delight and grief in war etc., is one who is elated or depressed by success or failure in victory (or the opposite) - a doer who fulfils these conditions is declared to be Rajasika.
