Prabhata Rashmih - The Practice of Sadhana

The Universe is Constituted by the Three Gunas

Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha

  • The Universe is Constituted by the Three Gunas

    Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha

In this track, Swamiji analyzes the three Gunas as presented in Bhagavad Gita. The three gunas (Sattva, Rajas and Tamas) constitute the whole prakriti (nature). Sattva represents light, happiness, and wisdom. Rajas represents the different forms of activities and the compulsions for them, namely, passion, prejudice, fear, etc. And tamo guna represents ignorance, sleep, and lethargy. All the activities of a human are propelled by the three gunas alone.

But there is something which manages, employs and preserves the three gunas. That inner Presence transcends the three gunas. A seeker’s pursuit is to realize this transcendental Presence. The realization of that leads to fulfillment.

Shlokas chanted in the track:

त्वं तु सर्वं परित्यज्य स्नेहं स्वजनबन्धुषु ।
मय्यावेश्य मनः संयक्समदृग्विचरस्व गाम् ।।

(Srimad Bhagavatam–11.7.6)

नान्यं गुणेभ्यः कर्तारं यदा द्रष्टानुपश्यति ।
गुणेभ्यश्च परं वेत्ति मद्भावं सोऽधिगच्छति ।।

(Bhagavad Gita–14.19)
