Kire guṇat iseloomustab mehe ja naise vaheline külgetõmme. Naist kütkestab mees ning meest naine. Seda nimetatakse kire guṇaks. Kui kire guṇa muutub inimese üle valitsevaks, tekib temas tugev soov meeleliste naudingute järele. Ta tahab meelelisi naudinguid. Kire guṇa mõju all viibiv inimene ihaldab meelte rahuldamiseks ühiskondlikku või rahvuslikku austust, ta tahab õnnelikku peret, toredaid lapsi, naist ja kodu. Kõik sellised soovid on sündinud kire guṇast. Nii kaua kui inimene omab selliseid soove, tuleb tal väga kõvasti tööd teha. Seetõttu öeldakse siin selgelt, et kire guṇa mõju all viibivat inimest aheldavad tema teod, sest ta on kiindunud oma tegevuse viljadesse. Rõõmustamaks oma naist, lapsi ja ühiskonda ning säilitamaks oma prestiiz̆i, peab inimene töötama. Seega on kogu materiaalne maailm suurelt jaolt kire guṇa mõju all. Kaasaegset ühiskonda peetakse arenenuks või mittearenenuks vastavalt kire guṇa standarditele. Varasematel aegadel oli standardiks vooruse guṇa. Ent kui ka vooruse guṇa mõju all viibivad inimesed ei saavuta vabanemist, mida siis rääkida veel nendest, keda valitseb kire guṇa.

The mode of passion is characterized by the attraction between man and woman. Woman has attraction for man, and man has attraction for woman. This is called the mode of passion. And when the mode of passion is increased, one develops the hankering for material enjoyment. He wants to enjoy sense gratification. For sense gratification, a man in the mode of passion wants some honor in society, or in the nation, and he wants to have a happy family, with nice children, wife and house. These are the products of the mode of passion. As long as one is hankering after these things, he has to work very hard. Therefore it is clearly stated here that he becomes associated with the fruits of his activities and thus becomes bound by such activities. In order to please his wife, children and society and to keep up his prestige, one has to work. Therefore, the whole material world is more or less in the mode of passion. Modern civilization is considered to be advanced in the standard of the mode of passion. Formerly, the advanced condition was considered to be in the mode of goodness. If there is no liberation for those in the mode of goodness, what to speak of those who are entangled in the mode of passion?
