रागी कर्मफलप्रेप्सुर्लुब्धो हिंसात्मकोऽशुचिः।
हर्षशोकान्वितः कर्ता राजसः परिकीर्तितः।।18.27।।
।।18.27।।जो कर्ता रागी? कर्मफलकी इच्छावाला? लोभी? हिंसाके स्वभाववाला? अशुद्ध और हर्षशोकसे युक्त है? वह राजस कहा गया है।
Now Lord Krishna describes the nature of one performing activities in raja guna the mode of passion. One who is ragi zealously ambitious in seeking fame, power, wealth, etc. One who is prepsuh always hankering for recompense and reward. One who is asucih or impure and greedy, envious and unrighteous causing injury to others by mental and physical cruelty. Such a one who is never in equipoise, who rejoices at success but is depressed by failure is indisputably known to be situated in raja guna.
