Bg. 18.24

यत्तु कामेप्सुना कर्म साहङ्कारेण वा पुन: ।
क्रियते बहुलायासं तद्राजसमुदाहृतम् ॥ २४ ॥
yat tu kāmepsunā karma
sāhaṅkāreṇa vā punaḥ
kriyate bahulāyāsaṁ
tad rājasam udāhṛtam


yat — that which; tu — but; kāmaīpsunā — by one with desires for fruitive results; karma — work; saahaṅkāreṇa — with ego;  — or; punaḥ — again; kriyate — is performed; bahulaāyāsam — with great labor; tat — that; rājasam — in the mode of passion; udāhṛtam — is said to be.


But action performed with great effort by one seeking to gratify his desires, and enacted from a sense of false ego, is called action in the mode of passion.
