Chapter 14 Verse 10 of 27

| | रजस् तमश् चाभिभूय | सत्त्वम्́ भवति भारत | रजः सत्त्वम्́ तमश् चैव | तमः सत्त्वम्́ रजस् तथा | |


Sometimes the mode of goodness becomes prominent, defeating the modes of passion and ignorance, O son of Bharata. Sometimes the mode of passion defeats goodness and ignorance, and at other times ignorance defeats goodness and passion. In this way there is always competition for supremacy.
