Bhagavad Gita Chapter 14- The Yoga of the Three Gunas


Bhagavad Gita
Bhagavad Gita




Bhagavad Gita Summary : Krishna told Arjuna that he is the seed giving father of all living beings and the form of body of all living beings. As living beings are born, by the very nature, they get three gunas (Characteristics), namely goodness (Sattva), Passion (Rajas) and Ignorance/Darkness (Tamas). Every living being consists of these three gunas. The goodness consists of knowledge, wisdom and illumination, the Passion consists desire, pleasure, pain, attachment, etc and the ignorance consists of darkness, madness, cruelty. The Goodness in a person can overrule passion and ignorance, similarly passion can overrule the goodness and ignorance, similarly Ignorance can overrule the goodness and passion, all of these happening at any instance in a living being life and over a period of time. At the time of death if one mainly consists of Goodness (over a period of time), then he reaches the heaven and he is born again in between good rational people, if one consists of passion then he takes birth again, in between greedy action oriented people and the one consists of Ignorance goes to hell and born again with the similar people or as animal. The one who understand all these three characteristics actually drives the living being, and when he realizes it’s only the supreme god who is creating the illusion, will stay away from them, by not attaching himself with action and it’s result, he will not hate happiness or sadness as both are same for him, and this person reaches the supreme god.

"Our Life: Let us put few questions before us, is there any time we helped to the one who deserved? Is there any time we felt really happy and thought, why doesn’t the time stops at this instance or I can die at this instance? Is there any time really we felt cheated or betrayed or we tried to give an unwanted feedback on someone? Truly for most of us, the answer will be yes, it’s nothing but, we travel across the goodness, passion and ignorance characteristics.  When we help, if we understand the person's condition is improved with that help, it’s goodness, however if you feel happy for that, maybe we are entering in to Passion, and if we feel only we can do that then we are ignorant. In a simple action, these three characteristics can dominate a person. Most of us live in Passion as the dominant character for us, because that drives us to do actions and makes us feel happy, sense of achievement, etc... At the same time we become emotional, sensitive, bring misery, etc... In an Indian common man life , he spends most of his time in talking on politics, cricket(sports), movies and actors, share market and land and then new addition is spirituality with meditation (or health ) for some men/women it’s extended fashion and food & travel.  All of these are passion for us, we talk, we see, we read on all these and satisfy our mind and sense, which is purely driven by the passion. More than spending time on self-realization , leave it... We can’t sit quite for an hour, without television, mobile, radio, or people... We always need someone/something to satisfy or interact; this is where Passion drives us mainly. If someone praises us or our action or our achievement, aren't we happy? Yes, most of us like it... If someone comes and gifts you a wrapped box, aren't we curious to open and see...Some of the also calculate the worth of the gift, based on what we gifted for that person and we expect similar or high return :)... Sometimes we are happy, when the who never listened to us get punished/facing problems and then we like say to him, see I told you... sometimes we go and aggressively pray to god, that the other person should get good punishment for the activity he has done... some of us, also challenge the other person, that we will teach them a lesson... Who are we? What do we think we are doing? Good or bad it comes to a person as they act, if someone deserves they will get... but we can’t dump our mind with ignorance and darkness, just by showing vengeance...  Yes... it’s difficult to practice... However the more we restraint ourselves in teaching lessons to others or asking god to go and do action for us, the better it’s for our mind... Believe no one can go out of the rule here.... whatever we think that some are enjoying their life , though they don’t deserve it... believe their life is nothing but full of misery and they live in ignorance.... 

The life here is not measured by the wealth you have or caste you are born or position you are in... It’s only measured by how close you are with the supreme personality...truly, there shouldn't be any gap between us and him, because we are him and he is Us.... so what do we need here more! And what life could be better than this?!!!!!..."
