The Three Gunas: Be Master Of Your Thoughts And Actions
One of the basic qualities predominates in every man, according to Hindu philosophy.* Sattva is the quality of those who have spiritual tendencies. They eat properly, cultivate good habits, and are devoted to the Lord. The rajas quality is manifested in those who are active; such persons keep busy with work until they die. Those in whom the tamas quality is uppermost fill their lives with quarreling, anger, jealousy, sensuality, and laziness.
Any habit that holds you from spiritual attainment should be overcome. You must be the master of your thoughts and actions. It is better to be the active rajasic type and to have your habits under control than to be the tamasic type; but the sattvic type in whom goodness manifests itself is ideal. Those who want to improve themselves should mix more with sattvic types.
-Paramahansa Yogananda, Man’s Eternal Quest, 321;
*All creation is subject to the influence of three inherent gunas or qualities: sattva, rajas, and tamas - spiritual or elevating, activating, or obstructing.
