Vedic philosophy describes three gunas (loosely translated, "tendencies" or "mental states"):

Sattva 
balance, order, purity
Rajas 
overactivity, turmoil
Tamas 
lethargy, entropy

These states are also used in Ayurveda, a Hindu system of holistic medicine, to assess conditions and diets.

These terms are also used in Indian alchemy. Their equivalents in western alchemy are:

Sattva: Mercury
Rajas: Sulphur
Tamas: Salt
