As per ancient Indian texts in Sanskrit each individual is made of
three 'Gunas' or properties viz:Sattvic, Rajasic, and Tamasic
Tamasic Guna is laziness or neglect which causes pain, e.g.laziness
in earning food causes hunger pangs.
Rajasic Guna is overindulgance, which again causes pain.
Sattvic Guna is not doing that which caused us pain, i.e., neither
starvation nor overeating. Sattvic Guna is the property that should
be aimed as it makes us progress.
Any questions? Hope I am clear.
