Swami Shantananda


All embodied souls are under the control of the three modes, or qualities, of material nature: goodness, passion and ignorance. In Chapter 14 of the Bhagavad Gita, titled “The Three Modes of Material Nature,” Lord Krishna explains what these modes are, how they act upon us, how one transcends them, and the symptoms of one who has attained the transcendental state.
