[gita-talk] Are the modes born of God, or Prakriti or Nature ?


Shree Hari   Ram Ram 

Question ‒ In the Gita somewhere it has been mentioned that the modes are evolved from God (Gita 7/12),  while somewhere they are said to be evolved from prakriti (Nature)  (Gita 13/19;   14/5) or from men's own nature (Gita 18/41).   So are the modes born of God, or Prakriti or Nature ?   

गीतामें कहीं तो सात्त्विक, राजस और तामस गुणोंको भगवान्‌से उत्पन्न बताया गया है (७ । १२), कहीं प्रकृतिसे उत्पन्न बताया गया है (१३ । १९;१४ । ५) और कहीं स्वभावसे उत्पन्न बताया गया है (१८ । ४१), तो गुण भगवान्‌से उत्पन्न होते हैं या प्रकृतिसे उत्पन्न होते हैं अथवा स्वभावसे उत्पन्न होते हैं ?
