Rajas

From Thelemapedia

Originating in Samkhya philosophy, rajas is one of the three gunas of Hinduism. The gunas are a means of categorizing behavior and natural phenomena in Hindu philosophy. It has been translated to mean "too active" and refers to one of three possible qualities (or gunas) of a person's mental state. A rajas quality implies that a person's mind is ever-active, in turmoil, or chaotic. Such a person is constantly seeking diversions and essentially has difficulty focusing his or her attention for long durations of time.

The other two vedic mental states are Sattva and Tamas.

The word rajas does not have the same meaning as raja.

It is used in Hindu diagnostics to assess conditions and diets in Ayurveda.
