Bhagavad Gita - Chapter II - Verse: 45

Transcend the qualities

Traigunya Vishaya Vedaha Nistraigunyo Bhavarjuna
Nirdwandwo Nithyasathvasthaha Niryogakshema Athmavan

Matter or Prakriti, nature is subject to constant modifications of the three gunas - Satwa - tranquili, Rajas - Dynamic and Tamas - Inert. The vedas concern themselves with these three modes of nature. Be beyond these three phases, Arjuna. Rise beyond the duality of opposites of pleasure and pain, light and darkness, divine in the unchanging reality called consciousness. Aspire not for uniting yourself to actions that give you gains nor be anxious about protecting them. - Swahilya Shambhavi.
