The 3 Gunas of Maya According to Shankara #263


Out of the famed scripture, Vivekachudamani, by Shankara, comes a full teaching on the gunas, those three flexuous modes of nature that both perplex and please living beings. The great advaitan has listed down many of the pluses and minuses of each guna, and has also added to the usually three-tiered structure a fourth level which is most desirable, called shuddha sattva, or pure sattva. Now, instead of resting is the pleasing but passing state of sattva, the aspirant can use that temporary balance to perform sadhana so as to attempt to transcend all three gunas — trigunatitananda.
