Daily Bhagavad Gita Message  

Gita 18-40

na tadasti pṛthivyāṁ vā divi deveṣu vā punaḥ
sattvaṁ prakṛtijairmuktaṁ yadebhiḥ syāttribhirguṇaiḥ

There is not a being on earth, nor in the heavens nor among the celestial beings or anywhere else who is free from the three Gunas (modes), born of Nature. 40


In the Tenth chapter from the devotion point of view, the Lord declared that all things originate from Him (10/39). Here from the view point of Knowledge (discrimination), the Lord declares that all beings emanate from the Gunas, born of Nature. The reason is that from the view point of person of discrimination, the real and the unreal, both exist; but from the viewpoint of a devotee, only God exists-- 'sadasaccāhamarjuna' (Gītā 9/19). In the path of discrimination, the renunciation of  unreal (or Gunas) is of prime importance but in devotion the relationship with God is supreme.
In this universe there is nothing which is free from the three Gunas-- this has been said from the point of view of an ignorant person rather than an enlightened soul. An enlightened soul has an eye on the Self which by nature is free from Guṇas (Gītā 13/31).

From Gita Prabodhani in Hindi, by Swami Ramsukhdasji
