New Age Spirituality Inspirational Stories Part 8



According to​ the Sankhya philosophy,nature is​ composed of​ three forces called, in​ Sanskrit, Sattva, Rajas, and Tamas. These as​ manifested in​ the physical world are what we may call equilibrium, activity, and inertness. Tamas is​ typified as​ darkness or​ inactivity; Rajas is​ activity, expressed as​ attraction or​ repulsion; and Sattva is​ the equilibrium of​ the two.

In every man there are these three forces. Sometimes Tamas prevails. We become lazy, we cannot move, we are inactive, bound down by certain ideas or​ by mere dullness. at​ other times activity prevails, and at​ still other times that calm balancing of​ both. Again, in​ different men, one of​ these forces is​ generally predominant. The characteristic of​ one man is​ inactivity, dullness and laziness; that of​ another, activity, power, manifestation of​ energy; and in​ still another we find the sweetness, calmness, and gentleness, which are due to​ the balancing of​ both action and inaction. So in​ all creation -- in​ animals, plants, and men -- we find the more or​ less typical manifestation of​ all these different forces.

Karma - yoga has specially to​ deal with these three factors. By teaching what they are and how to​ employ them, it​ helps us to​ do our work better. Human society is​ a​ graded organisation. We all know about morality, and we all know about duty, but at​ the same time we find that in​ different countries the significance of​ morality varies greatly. What is​ regarded as​ moral in​ one country may in​ another be considered perfectly immoral. For instance, in​ one country cousins may marry; in​ another,it is​ thought to​ be very immoral;in one, men may marry their sisters -in - law; in​ another, it​ is​ regarded as​ immoral; in​ one country people may marry only once; in​ another, many times; and so forth. Similarly, in​ all other departments of​ morality, we find the standard varies greatly yet we have the idea that there must be a​ universal standard of​ morality.
