Daily Reflections

Once there was a man travelling through a forest, carrying with him a treasure-chest full of valuable jewels. At a particular spot, three robbers attacked him. The first robber said, ‘Lets us kill him.’ The second robber, less blood-thirsty, suggested, ‘No, let us tie him up and rob him.’And so they did. The third robber came back after some time, untied the man and showed him the way back to safety. The three robbers symbolize the three gunas. The guans are qualities we all have within us. The tamasic quality, represented by the first robber, wants to kill our time, energy and talent, through idleness. The rajasic quality, like the second robber, only wants to immobilize us internally, through excessive activity, which steals our inner peace. But the sattvic quality, just as the third robber, returns, once th other two qualities have disappeared, and shows the way back to freedom. The rajasic and tamasic gunas end with the suffix ‘sic’ which sounds like ‘sick’ These qualities represent unsound health. We must try to cultivate the more spiritual or sattvic guna. This is the story of our life.
