yayā tu dharma-kāmārthān
dhṛtyā dhārayate ’rjuna
dhṛtiḥ sā pārtha rājasī
yayā — by which; tu — but; dharma — religiosity; kāma — sense gratification; arthān — and economic development; dhṛtyā — by determination; dhārayate — one sustains; arjuna — O Arjuna; prasaṅgena — because of attachment; phala-ākāṅkṣī — desiring fruitive results; dhṛtiḥ — determination; sā — that; pārtha — O son of Pṛthā; rājasī — in the mode of passion.
But that determination by which one holds fast to fruitive results in religion, economic development and sense gratification is of the nature of passion, O Arjuna.

यया तु धर्मकामार्थान्धृत्या धारयतेऽर्जुन ।
