THE IMPORTANCE OF BALANCING THE 3 GUNAS- RAJAS, SATTVA, TAMAS

00sat_raj_tam

The word we use so often, the word we discuss about in our daily life, how to achieve it, how to maintain it, how we should accomplish it and what is the secret behind it, is the word we fail to understand deeply – the word “balance”.

For a healthy life you need to balance your diet, balance your sleep, balance your physical activity to what you do and so on. It is like a juggling process it is simply that we must understand that we are juggling with delicate things.

In Hindu religion Gunas are the basic principles for the existence of everything in the universe, creation, maintenance and destruction, active, reconciling and negative, waking, dream and deep sleep and so on. This term is also used the describe the five elements and senses of the body, earth, water, fire, space and air or smell, taste, appearance, sound and feeling. This simple classification is also used in Ayurvedic medicine but it can be applied to everyday human life as well.

Our energy during the day or the week can be described through the three Gunas which can help us identify what is causing our lack of balance and change that through becoming more aware and practice yoga. The Sattva Guna is tendency for purity or harmony, rajas is action and energy and tamas is inactivity and ignorance.

The three modes of material nature is something we can learn to understand and adapt. We can adapt our diet, we can adapt our sleeping patterns and we can spend time on our spiritual search. This way, through taking care of our bodies, minds and spirit we will successfully juggle the three Gunas. It is believed that if your Guna is lower Guna you are focused into the material world, however everyone can reach liberation if the Gunas are proportional and he or she dedicated more time on personal and spiritual growth.

You can call it the line between yin  & yang which represent complete opposites that balance each other, balancing the Gunas or use a different terminology, however the idea is the same. Pay equal attention to taking care of your physical, emotional and spiritual state and your road to liberation will be easied.

Offer a Bilva tree to the Lord Siva, the symbol of the tantrik trinity of Shiva, Brahma and Visha as well as the Gunas and open your eyes to the universe.
