SrI: SrImathE SatakOpAya nama: SrImathE rAmAnujAya nama: SrImath varavaramunayE nama:
yat tad agre ’mṛtopamam
pariṇāme viṣam iva
tat sukhaṁ rājasaṁ smṛtam
‘That is declared Rājasa-Happiness, which by contact of sense with object, is at first as nectar, but venom in the end.’
What, when enjoying objects by means of the senses, seems as nectar, but which in the end, —when no more relish or hunger remains for obtaining such sense-gratification, when it is realized too as a premium paid for infernum—, is felt as if a potion were taken of poison, that is said to be Rājasa-Happiness.
