The three verses from the Divine Bhagavad-Gita on the Satvik, Rajasik and Tamasic, described below should be of great interest to the serious and advanced Sadhaks who are striving for spiritual progress, including Mantra Siddhi and Kundalini Shakti Jagruti.
“The Satvik, Rajasik and Tamasic Gunas or States, which exist, know them to be born of me alone; but I am not in them even though they abide in me.”
“All and Everything in the Cosmos is deluded by these Three Gunas; does not know me, who is beyond them and unchangeable and ever existent.”
“This divine Maya [illusion] of me, which is comprised of the Three Gunas, is hard to overcome; only those taking refuge in me are able get over this illusion.“
Most Sadhaks experience difficulties and lack of forward moment if they commence any spiritual Sadhana with a pre-conceived or pre-set state of mind. Their minds start recreating what they have read or heard about the experiences of those who have traveled far into the unknown. Such Sadhaks invariably fall into the trap of Maya and become deluded into entering a pre-set state of mind and start hallucinating as their minds are recreating the experiences of others.
What we learn from these verses of the Bhagavad-Gita is that the real state of existence lies hidden and clouded behind the Maya Jal [Web of Illusion] of the Three Gunas. The Sadhaka has to transcend the May Jal weaved by the Gunas to unearth the secrets of Tantra Sadhana and gain Siddhi by learning to differentiate what is the real and what is the creation of his mind.
