Sadhguru speaks about the three basic gunas – tamas, rajas, and sattva, and tells us how not to “miss the point” of Navratri.

Sadhguru: All the qualities of the world have been identified as three basic gunas, tamas, rajas, and sattva. Inertia is called tamas. Activity is called rajas. Transcendence is called sattva.

There is no physical entity without all these three dimensions. Not a single atom is free of these three dimensions of a certain static nature, of energy, and of vibrance. If these three elements are not there, you cannot hold anything together – it will break up. If it is just sattva, you won't remain here for a moment – you will be gone. If it is just rajas, it’s not going to work. If it’s just tamas, you will be asleep all the time. So, these three qualities are present in everything. It is just a question of to what extent you mix these things.

The nine days of Navratri are classified as to the three basic qualities of tamas, rajas and sattva. It is good to enjoy Navratri and make use of it. For those who are on certain type of sadhana, like brahmacharies and a few others, it doesn't matter what day it is. But for all others it will matter. It is good to make use of the little supports that nature offers. Going on your own steam is not impossible, but not many people made it, that's all.

Approaching every aspect of life in a celebratory way is most important.

Above all, approaching every aspect of life in a celebratory way is most important. If you approach everything in a celebratory way, you learn to be non-serious about life but absolutely involved. The problem with most human beings right now is, if they think something is important they will become dead serious about it. If they think it is not so important they will become lax about it, they don’t show the necessary involvement. In English, if we say “He is in a very serious condition,” that means the next step is you know where. And a lot of people are in a serious condition.

The passage, the secret of life is in just this – seeing everything with a non-serious eye, but absolutely involved – like a game. That’s the reason the most profound aspects of life are approached in a celebratory way, so that you don’t miss the point.

Editor’s Note: Each day of Navratri includes the Navratri Pooja, a powerful opportunity to imbibe Devi’s Grace. The Navratri pooja includes an elaborate abhishekam of 11 offerings and a vibrant offering of music and dance thereby creating an explosion of energy with songs extoling Devi at her fullest glory.

मत दबाऑ जमीनो मे , मत बरबाद करो
अगर होता कोई हमारा अच्छा भगवान या अच्छा इंसान , हम भी होते अच्छी बुद्धी के अच्छे इन्सान

Draupady , ganga ,kannagi , bhooma devi ,
saraswaties . sitas , and other devies and other good peoples were
always and again and again insulted and were victim of cruielties and
crimes .and girls like taraka(tataka) and her mother and her souls were

accused and culprits and of cruilities ,why the girls like taraka
could not become good humans and peoples like others . why peoples
became so bad and wrong even girl and ladies insulted girls and ladies
,

Was kunti and kunti's humans and other souls were real
cuilprits , in the 2012 ,13 ,2014 were beaten and killed very badlly by
the gods like bharama , guru bhiraspati ,dakshina moorti , two goddess
might be ganga and draupadi and other gods like may be ram ,krishna ,
and others .of many mahabharata story of one kunty was mother of human
of taraka or taraka sister .according to
one story draupadi was boon/cursed by shiva of five husdands . kunti and
kunti's humans and other souls would had been culprits or guilty of
revenges .

Were putana , who tried to kill krishna by making
drink milk and other women ,like holika ,who tried to burn krishna and
other womens and others were culprits or were became the cuplprits of
wrong and bad traditions or bad karmas of karmas or some other
traditions

Why krishna ,rama ,shiva and others mahans elder peoples were good peoples and indras and others peoples were bad
crores and crores have been destroyed and are being buried alive under earths , throughwn into hells and made landless ,
why others peoles could not become good humans and good peoples

who were those peoples , which has been and being killed ,destroyieded ,
whose generations were , why were bad peoples , were really bad , why
could not became good peoples ,

Were rama and ravana were
enemy ? , if i am not wrong rama shakti and murgan and veerbhadra are
same avatars .(savarupnaga , ravana sister and sita might had been the close
relative) .
which
peoples would had some wrong and intercaste marrages . intercaste
marrages would had been the cause of quarrels there would had been great
conspirancies to kill the peoples. which were from the westren and
south westron parts of himayalas .in many stories of dakasa prajapati
story also many wrong and multy wifes and mishappenigs happened . (
peoples which had to make lifes good and better , used the criminals
,enemities and wrong ideas and methods for spoiling and destroying the
lifes )

Culprits and cruel peoples , who had done cruelities
on brahma and saraswati , and ganga and sita , ahiyilia , draupdi and on
many goddesses and gods ,and on good peoples ,

crores
and crores of peoples are being killed ,destryoed in such a way no one
can find out , and given different shapes and made to bad brains and
minds ,
genetical deshaped and disorded to lusty and bad brains and bad minds .
are made from single soul to multy humans souls to suffer and painful
creatures to never become humans and buried alive under earth and even
killed into stomaches and made to toilets and throughn into hells like
toilets
cause ----Culprits and cruel peoples , who had done cruelities
on brahma and saraswati , and ganga and sita , ahiyilia , draupdi and on
many goddesses and gods ,and on good peoples ,

{my views , which i found some what truth )my views may or may not be acceptable truth.}

Many ramayanas are there , like valmiki ,vashist ,kamb, ramanujan ,ramayanaa are few of many other versons of ramayana ,
what is the meaning of ramayana found ,– ramayana = ram +ayan ( ayan meaning came ) ,

according
to some stories ahyilyia was cursed by gotham rishi , Ahalya was
converted to stone ,As for Ahalya, Gautama granted her the boon that she
would be brought back to human form by the touch of the feet of Lord
Rama .
so rama avatar would had been made (incarnated) ,thus how many ramas would had been created ,

would gotham rishi would be knowing about rama avatar ?

like
ramayana so many ahilya versons are there ,( like in a verson , ganga
tells to gautam , it is mid night not the bath time go to home and see
some thing would have been wrong ) .

how many Ahilyas storeies
would had been made and how many gautams would had been made and how
many ahilyas lifes would had been spoiled ,how many indras would had
been made and how many girls/boys souls would had been made to sit in
hen or cock and make sound (cock crow) .thus how many would had been
made culprits ,sinners ,bad brains ,bad habituals of bad acts and bad
karma .
and those cuilprits , sinners are/would had been made to quarrel and killed in the wars of ramanyana .?

mahabharta
, would had took placed for the revenges and the cruelties happened on
ladies ( like savarupnakha ,sita ) . to show the cruelities ,gamblings
were played and sarees were made to removed

like ramayana vishvamitra story would have many versons and vishvamitras

mahabharata
would had been happened for revenges of ramayana and ramayana would had
been happened for ahiylia and what would be reason behind ahiliyia
insult was conspirancies or any ones evil idea .

really how many
would had been real culptits and how many would had been created and how
many would had been victims of vengences and eneyminities and how many
peoples souls would had been killed

killed peoples would had been
given births to different parents , differnt mothers ,different fathers
, and thus differnt marrages would had taken places in past birth some
ones mothers would had been wife of some another person .and some wrong
and illigal methods and would had been used like rapes for the birth and
for enemities and revenges .
thus quarrels would had been on increasing ,and peoples and souls became culprits and victims .
according
to one of the satguru video in the past arround 18 millions years 1.8
crores years ago and one of the papa ji ( h.l. punja ) video , arround
80 millilons years ,8 crores years ago some incarnations had took placed
and some wrong things and wrong marrages and wrong interchanged
childrens were given births by the other not by their husbands .
like this millions and millions peoples are accused .

( peoples which had to make lifes good and better , used the criminals
,and wrong ideas and methods for spoiling and destroying the lifes )

More than 99 % of peoples, gods ,souls had been inocents ,had not been
victims . if polatictics , conspirancies , crimanilites ,some wrong
traditions and some wrong rules of few from the ancient times would had
not been made.

why the wrong and mishappenings happened and
happenings from the very ancient times , why peoples went wrong for
wrong marrages wrong acts
Why the gods , devatas , peoples and
humans became wrong of bad wisdoms and wrong acts and bad karmas ,crores
and crores of peoples ,were all the peoples were bad .why became bad
instead of becoming good humans and peoplesfor examples of very few , link given below–copy & paste
