[As per the Samkhya system, the universe and all its matter can be elucidated to one primary substance called Prakriti. Prakriti in the literal sense can be translated as the power of action. Prakriti needs to refer to a physical form but to the potential form in which all matter, energy and mind can arise. Prakriti is the original state of pure potential out of which all things become possible.
The Indian Philosophy of Samkhya divides reality into two categories – the knower and the known – Purusha and Prakriti.]
In Sanskrit, the word Guna translates as “quality, peculiarity, attribute, or tendency.” The three Gunas are illustrated as being continuously in a state of influx and cross-interaction, in a playful state referred to as Maya or illusion. All three Gunas exist in all individuals and things surrounding us but vary in their relative amounts. Someone might have Rajas as their dominant guna and someone might have Tamas as their dominant Guna and so on.
Take this quiz to find out more about your primary Guna.
One Guna might be more dominant for you than others, however, all three are equally important and have their functional roles to play. Just like the Ayurvedic Doshas- Vata, Pitta and Kapha.
