BG Chap 18 - Worker in the mode of passion

The worker who is attached to his work and family, who desires the results of his actions, who is greedy, a miser, who gives pain to others, who is unclean, and moved by joy and sorrow, is in the mode of passion. A person is too much attached to a certain kind of work or to the result because he has too much attachment for materialism or hearth and home, wife and children. Such a person has no desire for higher elevation in life. He is simply concerned with making this world as materially comfortable as possible. He is generally very greedy, and he thinks that anything attained by him is permanent and never to be lost. He is reluctant to spend money on necessary things. Such a person is envious of others and prepared to do anything wrong for sense gratification. Therefore such a person is unclean. He is very happy if his work is successful and very much distressed when his work is not successful.
