रागी कर्मफलप्रेप्सुर्लुब्धो हिंसात्मकोऽशुचि: |
हर्षशोकान्वित: कर्ता राजस: परिकीर्तित: ||
rāgī karma-phala-prepsur lubdho hinsātmako ‘śhuchiḥ
harṣha-śhokānvitaḥ kartā rājasaḥ parikīrtitaḥ
जो कर्ता आसक्ति से युक्त कर्मों के फल को चाहने वाला और लोभी है तथा दूसरों को कष्ट देने के स्वभाववाला, अशुद्धाचारी और हर्ष-शोक से लिप्त है वह राजस कहा गया है॥27॥
The performer is considered in the mode of passion when he or she craves the fruits of the work, is covetous, violent-natured, impure, and moved by joy and sorrow.
