Srimad Bhagavadgita Sadhaka Sanjivani -Swami Ramsukhdas
- Here the topic is based on the twenty-third verse of the sixteenth chapter because in both the verses there is the mention of 'having cast aside the ordinances of the scriptures'. Instead of 'under the impulse of desire' here the expression 'endowed with faith' has been used; similarly instead of'acts' the expression 'performs sacrifice and instead of 'attains neither perfection, no happiness nor the Supreme Goal' the sentence 'What is their position - Sattva, Rajas or Tamas have been used.
- The ordinances of the scriptures are neglected by (1) ignorance (2) indifference (3) opposition.
- Sattvaguna (the mode of goodness) is ten times superior to the Rajoguna (the mode of passion) while the mode of passion is ten times superior to the Tamoguna (the mode of ignorance). It means that the mode of goodness is a hundred times superior to the mode of ignorance.
