1. Arjuna said : Those who, discarding the rules of scriptures, offer sacrifices with full receptivity, what is their position, O Krishna ? Is it saatvic, raajasic or taamasic ?
Bhashya :- शास्त्रविधिमुत्सृज्य means without following the scriptural rules. “Knowing the injunctions of the Vedas, the twiceborn ones should proceed in their study” thus the persons not being aware of this knowledge give it up. “Those who do not study the Vedas or even after studying, do not follow the wisdom of the Vedas are not well equipoised”, thus in Madhuchhanda scripture. Otherwise they would be taamasic ones. If they were saatvic then they would not be reject rules commended in scripture nor would the performance of their action be against Dharma. “Because all the Vedas are the basis of Dharma”, thus in scriptures.- In Bhagavat Puraana also having been mentioned that what is prescribed by the Vedas is Dharma and all that is contrary to that is against Dharma.
