  2. Sattvam

    Bg 14.6

    tatra sattva nirmalatvāt
    prakāśakam anāmayam
    gena badhnāti
    gena cānagha

    Word for word:

    tatra — there; sattvam — the mode of goodness; nirmalatvāt — being purest in the material world;prakāśakam — illuminating; anāmayam — without any sinful reaction; sukha — with happiness; sagena— by association; badhnāti — conditions; jñāna — with knowledge; sagena — by association; ca — also; anagha — O sinless one.


    O sinless one, the mode of goodness, being purer than the others, is illuminating, and it frees one from all sinful reactions. Those situated in that mode become conditioned by a sense of happiness and knowledge.


    The living entities conditioned by material nature are of various types. One is happy, another is very active, and another is helpless. All these types of psychological manifestations are causes of the entities’ conditioned status in nature. How they are differently conditioned is explained in this section ofBhagavad-gītā. The mode of goodness is first considered. The effect of developing the mode of goodness in the material world is that one becomes wiser than those otherwise conditioned. A man in the mode of goodness is not so much affected by material miseries, and he has a sense of advancement in material knowledge. The representative type is the brāhmaa, who is supposed to be situated in the mode of goodness. This sense of happiness is due to understanding that, in the mode of goodness, one is more or less free from sinful reactions. Actually, in the Vedic literature it is said that the mode of goodness means greater knowledge and a greater sense of happiness.

    The difficulty here is that when a living entity is situated in the mode of goodness he becomes conditioned to feel that he is advanced in knowledge and is better than others. In this way he becomes conditioned. The best examples are the scientist and the philosopher. Each is very proud of his knowledge, and because they generally improve their living conditions, they feel a sort of material happiness. This sense of advanced happiness in conditioned life makes them bound by the mode of goodness of material nature. As such, they are attracted toward working in the mode of goodness, and, as long as they have an attraction for working in that way, they have to take some type of body in the modes of nature. Thus there is no likelihood of liberation, or of being transferred to the spiritual world. Repeatedly one may become a philosopher, a scientist or a poet, and repeatedly become entangled in the same disadvantages of birth and death. But, due to the illusion of the material energy, one thinks that that sort of life is pleasant.

  9. "I [have] always believed in [the] freedom to write as one thinks, in the order and disorder in which one feels and thinks, to follow sensations and absurd correlations of events and images, to trust to the new realms they lead one into. … It is not madness. It is an effort to transcend the rigidities and the patterns made by the rational mind."

  14. "There’s a marvelous peace in not publishing … Publishing is a terrible invasion of my privacy. I like to write. I live to write. But I write just for myself and my own pleasure." J.D. Salinger

    As do I. Someone once put it to me this way. When I write, I write to the my second self.
