Synthesis of Yoga Pt. 1, Ch. 10

The Three Modes of Nature, chapter 10, page 232, begins with an explanation of these three modes, their qualities, their workings.

These modes, termed gunas in Indian books, are named as sattva, rajas, tamas. No man is entirely one or another: Sri Aurobindo points out that all three are present in everyone and, everything; a constant combining, separating of their relations is in play.

In detail each guna is explained. One’s dominant guna is not the soul type of the individual but rather an index made for the present existence, at the particular moment of his evolution in Time.
