Sattvic Mind is a Positive mind
by Gargi Harjai November 29, 2021
According to Hindu mythology, the mind is not different from nature, instead it is a part of nature. In Samkhya philosophy, the universe is referred to as Prakriti. In prakriti, everything is a product of three gunas, and their combinations. These three gunas are Sattva, Tamas and Rajas.Sattva Guna is a representation of happiness, calmness, balance, harmony, peace and tranquillity.Tamas Guna is a representation of laziness, sadness, doubt, insecurity, inactivity and fear.Rajas Guna is a representation of hyperactivity, self-centeredness, pride, greed, anger, and impatience.Our mind, just like nature, is a combination of these three gunas. These three gunas are equally important in the constitution of our mind, however, sattva Guna is responsible for our happiness and positivity.We are able to sleep because of Tamas Guna, however, what ensures the peaceful sleep is sattva Guna. We make goals, and work hard to achieve them because of Rajas Guna, but after achieving our goal, Sattva Guna gives us a feeling of satisfaction, relief and happiness.Ultimately, Sattva Guna is what our mind needs the most. Every being on earth looks for relaxation and peace. Our ultimate goal to live is being happy, and one can only achieve this goal if we learn to embrace our Sattvic mind.
