BG Chap 18 - Action in the mode of ignorance

That work performed out of illusion, which leads to bondage, which is destructive, harmful to others and performed by force is in the mode of ignorance. That work leads to later bondage by Yamaraja, destroys dharma, knowledge and other good qualities, is done without prior consideration, and is commenced out of ignorance. It is often based on violence and is distressing to other living entities.
