A Table of the Modes: The Remedy for Cluelessness

Clueless? Indeed.

As the bard of my generation once lamented:

You’ve been with the professors
And they’ve all liked your looks
With great lawyers you have
Discussed lepers and crooks
You’ve been through all of
F. Scott Fitzgerald’s books
You’re very well read
It’s well known

Because something is happening here
But you don’t know what it is
Do you, Mister Jones?

The real remedy for cluelessness is to become a person who can see things through the “eyes of knowledge” (jñāna-cakṣuṣaḥ). This blog (whose very title owes something to Dylan’s  “something is happening here”) aims to promote seeing through the eyes of knowledge.

The science of the three modes of nature is essential to the education of our vision. I’ve recently offered three postings concerning the three modes of nature. As an addition to them, this table provides a systematic overview compiled by Bhagavad-gītā and Śrīmad Bhāgavatam.

    Would someone please elaborate on the sanskrit meaning of Sattvas, Rajas, and Tamas? I asked Dvijamani but he only had the time to talk about sattva and to tell me that rajas (passion) and raja (king) are of different roots and totally unrelated.
