‘But that Act is declared Rājasa, which is
done with desire-aim and egotism, and attended with great effort.’
Desire-aim = aiming or desiring for fruit, and attended with egotism (ahaṇkāra), or the self-love that one is the performer of the work; and also ‘attended with great effort’ or trouble. This kind of work is called Rājasa, —work which is done with the egotistic idea or conceit: ‘What a work of enormous trouble this; it has by me been done’ etc.
