<< Chapter 17 Verse 16

Simple

śraddhayā parayā taptaṁ
tapas tat tri-vidhaṁ naraiḥ
aphalākāṅkṣibhir yuktaiḥ
sāttvikaṁ paricakṣate

‘The threefold Austerity, done by men in fervid faith, exempt from hope of fruit, and devoutly, is Sātvikam, they say.’

Not longing for fruit; and devout, (yuktaiḥ) —i.e., imbued with the thought that all is worship rendered to Paramapurusha—; and united to ardent faith, the Tapas done by men, of the three kinds, Bodily, Oral and Mental (aforesaid), is declared to be Sātvikam.
