Mahabharata: All about Trigunas

This work is a compilation of essential material on TrigunasTrigunas constitute a central or key concept in adhyatma shastra and its clear understanding is essential to a scholar as well as to a sadhak.

The contents are taken from,

  • Bhagavad Gita (The main source)
  • Mahabharata, mostly from Mokshadharma parva which appears in Shanti parva
  • Sri Aurobindo’s work ‘Essays on Gita’

Special feature of Sri Aurobindo’s work is that for several aspects he describes what happens at the culmination of Sattwa, the point of transformation for going beyond trigunas.
