BG Chap 18 - Determination in the mode of ignorance

That determination which cannot go beyond dreaming, fearfulness, lamentation, dejection, illusion and passion is in the mode of ignorance. By this determination a fool is attached to engaging his senses and mind in actions causing sleep, fear, lamentation, depression and arrogance arising from sense enjoyment. Those who cannot avoid oversleeping, who cannot avoid the pride of enjoying material objects, who are always dreaming of lording it over the material world, and whose life, mind and senses are thus engaged, are considered to have determination in the mode of ignorance.
