"Mastering the Triune Qualities of Consciousness: Guna-Karma"
“The qualities Sattva, illumination, Rajas, creativity, and Tamas, passivity, are born of Prakriti, and they bind the imperishable embodied self in the body. The embodied self, having risen above these three Gunas out of which the body is evolved, becomes free from birth, death, old age and sorrow, and attains to immortality.”
—Srimad Bhagavad Gita
Continuing in our Kriya meditation series we seek to enlighten ourselves to the realization of the self that is not bound to the modifications of change. Any of these three qualities may prevail over the others at any particular time but we should not allow them to dominate us.
The nature of Prakriti is constantly changing but the nature of the soul is changeless. The world of creation depends on these qualities of manifestation. Transcending the limitations of the gunas, we find freedom and eternal oneness.
