Nature – Understanding and Transcending It

Gita Chapter 14: For Traya Wibhaga Yoga, the Three Properties of Material Nature, discusses Triguna (the three properties of material nature) – Sattvam, Rajas and Tamas, all spirits are confined in the body under the control of the three properties of material nature; goodness (sattvam), lust (rajas) and stupidity (tamas). Lord Krishna explains the meaning of these qualities in this chapter, how they affect us, how to transcend those qualities and the characteristics of people who have attained a spiritual state (one who has escaped from the three natures of nature).
