SrI: SrImathE SatakOpAya nama: SrImathE rAmAnujAya nama: SrImath varavaramunayE nama:
śraddhayā parayā taptaṁ
tapas tat tri-vidhaṁ naraiḥ
‘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.
