    तत्र सत्त्वं निर्मलत्वात्प्रकाशकमनामयम् ।
    सुखसङ्गेन बध्नाति ज्ञानसङ्गेन चानघ ॥

  2. Pranam Swamiji 🌹🙏❤️🙏 nicely explained by charts. Desire and ego be eliminated from Trigunas to avoid bondage. Thanks and regards and gratitude to Swamiji

  3. Sattva guna enables us to understand the ultimate truth.. it also helps us recognize the constricting traits in our personality, which are opposed to auspiciousness and persuades us to overcome them .. Rajo guna with its vikshepa power creates a differential vision of 'mine' and 'not mine'.. from which arises desire and attachment and dethrones us from the self seatedness…it binds us through ego and desire motivate actions… Tamo guna with its veiling power binds us to inattention, lethargy and inertia .. The three gunas themselves are pure, they make the whole universe function in beautiful harmony… only when we indulge our ego and desires in this natural play, we find ourselves bound! 🙏🙏

  4. Satva Guna leads to Yoga , Rajo Guna leads to Bhoga , Thamo Guna leads to Moha. Good Point to remember. Thanks

  5. Very Important take away. Be cautious of spiritual ego and attachment to subjective result of action.

  6. JAI GURU👏
    Swamiji recounts the anecdote of how Pure Vasishthadeva got affected by aavarana and vikshepa, simply by sitting on the lap of Brahmaji.
    However, sitting on HIS LAP OF WISDOM, Swamiji is compassionately removing bit by bit, the thick blankets of aavarana and vikshepa that have shrouded us for millennias.
    Reverential Gratitude 🙏
