Bhagavad Gita


सत्कारमानपूजार्थं तपो दम्भेन चैव यत् । क्रियते तदिह प्रोक्तं राजसं चलमध्रुवम् ॥ १७.१८ ॥


जो तप सत्कार, मान और पूजा के लिये तथा अन्य किसी स्वार्थ के लिये भी स्वभाव से या पाखण्ड से किया जाता है, वह अनिश्चित एवं क्षणिक फल वाला तप यहाँ राजस कहा गया है|


However, My best of friend, he who falsely performs self-discipline and restraint purely for the sake of reputation, high honour, and for show, is considered to be impure and of the Rajas (passionate) nature. This type of self-restraint is unstable and lasts only temporarily.
