रजस्तमश्चाभिभूय सत्त्वं भवति भारत ।
रजः सत्त्वं तमश्चैव तमः सत्त्वं रजस्तथा ॥ १० ॥
हे अर्जुन ! रजोगुण और तमोगुण को दबाकर सत्त्वगुण, सत्त्वगुण और तमोगुण को दबाकर रजोगुण, सत्त्वगुण और रजोगुण को दबाकर तमोगुण बढ़ता है ।
It all brings to mind the shloka in 14th chapter of गीता – रजस्तमश्चाभिभूय सत्त्वं भवति भारत । रजः सत्त्वं तमश्चैव तमः सत्त्वं रजस्तथा ।।
Hacking websites, supposedly not in line with their minds, is proof of how तमः सत्त्वं तथा रजः अभिभूय भवति ।
The challenge is how to make सत्त्व to become established. The way shown is रजस्तमश्चाभिभूय. This is only the direction for it and not the complete process. Any ideas on the process or options to ensure रजस्तमश्चाभिभूय ?
It seems, सत्त्वं तथा रजः अभिभूय is easier for तमः But it seems so much more challenging for सत्त्वं to be रजस्तमश्चाभिभूय. Why should it be so ?
Pertinent question: Why is it easier, almost always, for the vicious to overwhelm others ?
Why is it easier, almost always, for the vicious to overwhelm others ?
I know few answers:
1) The so called good(सत्त्वं ) of the society are never interested in united force. They tend to live secluded individual cocoons. “में भला और मेरा जीवन. Rest can go to hell”
2) बल(राजस्) + बुद्धि(सत्व) combination is difficult composition. Without powerful catalyst, it is impossible to have both qualities together. Human catalyst cannot act on भीड़. Closed group of like-minded students. That is where catalyst can act.
बल(राजस्) + Vile( तमः) is relatively easy composition. No need to have catalyst.
