|Canto 11: General History||Chapter 25: The Three Modes of Nature and Beyond|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 11.25.14
yadā jayet tamaḥ sattvaḿ
rajaḥ sańgaḿ bhidā calam
tadā duḥkhena yujyeta
karmaṇā yaśasā śriyā
yadā — when; jayet — conquers; tamaḥ sattvam — both ignorance and goodness; rajaḥ — passion; sańgam — (the cause of) attachment; bhidā — separatism; calam — and change; tadā — then; duḥkhena — with misery; yujyeta — one becomes endowed; karmaṇā — with material work; yaśasā — with (the desire for) fame; śriyā — and with opulence.
When the mode of passion, which causes attachment, separatism and activity, conquers ignorance and goodness, a man begins to work hard to acquire prestige and fortune. Thus in the mode of passion he experiences anxiety and struggle.
