The fourteenth chapter of the Bhagavad Gita gives the knowledge of the three cosmic qualities or Gunas, namely, Sattwa, Rajas and Tamas. The knowledge of these three Gunas, which hold the entire universe and all creatures under their sway, is of vital importance to each and everyone for their progress and happiness in life. Without this knowledge one will be forever bound by sorrow. In this knowledge we have the secret of success in worldly life as well as in spiritual life. Therefore, one should acquire this precious knowledge.
