|Canto 11: General History||Chapter 25: The Three Modes of Nature and Beyond|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 11.25.30
dravyaḿ deśaḥ phalaḿ kālo
jñānaḿ karma ca kārakaḥ
trai-guṇyaḥ sarva eva hi
dravyam — object; deśaḥ — place; phalam — result; kālaḥ — time; jñānam — knowledge; karma — activity; ca — and; kārakaḥ — performer; śraddhā — faith; avasthā — state of consciousness; ākṛtiḥ — species; niṣṭhā — destination; trai-guṇyaḥ — partaking of the three modes; sarvaḥ — all these; eva hi — certainly.
Therefore material substance, place, result of activity, time, knowledge, work, the performer of work, faith, state of consciousness, species of life and destination after death are all based on the three modes of material nature.
