|Chapter 18||Final Revelations of the Ultimate Truth||Verse 39|
Rudra Vaisnava Sampradaya:
The sukham or happiness which in the beginning from the first moment is deluded and also at the end is deluded arising from slothfulness, lassitude, and foolishness and neglecting what needs to be done and accomplished, Lord Krishna asserts is situated in tama guna the mode of ignorance.
Brahma Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Sri Vaisnava Sampradaya:
That sukham or happiness which enthrals the jiva or embodied being both at the beginning and as well at the end even after the habitual, repetitive experience exhibits its true nature of enslavement and bondage to samsara the perpetual cycle of birth and death is affirmed by Lord Krishna as tama guna the mode of ignorance. The word mohanam means delusion and is the obscuration of the true nature of reality. Nidra or slumber denotes unconsciousness which can transpire even while engaging in an act of enjoyment. Alasya is slothfulness, the lassitude which comes from habitually dulled senses and which certainly contributes to dullness of mind. Pramada is inattention to what is required and is connected to dullness of mind. So the delusive nature of nidra, alasya and pramada are all situated firmly in tama guna and along with the characteristics of raja guna are very detrimental to the aspiring jiva.
Kumara Vaisnava Sampradaya:
That sukham or happiness which stupefies the jiva or embodied being by making perception of reality obscure. Which seems to be like nectar in the beginning as well as in the end and which is supported by slothfulness, indolence, folly and delusion is declared by Lord Krishna as situated in tama guna the mode of ignorance.
