यया तु धर्मकामार्थान्धृत्या धारयतेऽर्जुन |

प्रसङ्गेन फलाकाङ् क्षी धृति: सा पार्थ राजसी ||

yayā tu dharma-kāmārthān dhṛityā dhārayate ‘rjuna
prasaṅgena phalākāṅkṣhī dhṛitiḥ sā pārtha rājasī



परंतु हे पृथापुत्र अर्जुन! फल की इच्छावाला मनुष्य जिस धारण शक्ति के द्वारा अत्यंत आसक्ति से धर्म, अर्थ और कामों को धारण करता है, वह धारण शक्ति राजसी है॥34॥


he steadfast will by which one holds to duty, pleasures, and wealth, out of attachment and desire for rewards, is determination in the mode of passion.


English Translation Of Sri Shankaracharya’s Sanskrit Commentary By Swami Gambirananda

18.34 Tu, but, O Partha; the dhrtya, firmness; yaya, with which; a person dharayate, holds on to; dharma-kama-arthan, righteousness, covetable things and wealth-entertains the conviction in the mind that these ought to be pursued always; and becomes phala-akanksi, desirous of their fruits; prasangena, as the occasion for each arises, according as the situation arises for holding on to any one of dharma etc.; sa, that; dhrtih, firmness; is rajasi, born of rajas.
