  1. Our Mind is under three Gunas of Maya and they keep changing. Understanding with kindness can reduce the expectations and help in smooth relationship.

  2. Swamiji, very beautiful video about relationship. The mind is made of Maya which has three gunas and these gunas are in flux so mood keep on changing.

  3. What a wonderful sansang Gurudev. These 3 gunas are responsible for our karma – good or not so good. The moment we transcend the trigunas, we become free from our karma. Chanting the divine names of the Lord and Meditating on Thy Lord's personal form are some of the ways to achieve it. Am I right Gurudev? If so, is it possible to achieve this in one lifetime?

  4. Continuing with the discussion on the foolishness of expecting others to always do what we want, Swamiji says that our mind is made up of material energy or maya. Because of the influence of maya, our gunas fluctuate in response to environmental events as do the gunas of other people. Thus, conflicts occur in relationships because our gunas are different from each other so we do not think alike. Thank you, Swamiji!

  5. Excellent clip on the predominance of different gunas in everyone at different times, which can potentially lead to conflict and disputes! Thank you for sharing this valuable knowledge!

  6. Awesome explanation by Swami Mukundananda Ji in the changing the mood of everyone. It is directly dependent upon the Guna they will be possessing at that point of time. The expectations that we will be having from others will not work due to the fluctuations of Guna’s in Everyone. Swamiji gave nice example of 3 wrestlers fighting among themselves to get the dominating position, the same way the three Gunas have the impact on the mood of each person. Saatvic mode of goodness will increase towards calmness, spirituality etc, then if some one hurts immediately changed to the mood of passion or rajo guna, if someone say a bad word to us then change to tamo guna or ignorance. Due to this our expectations will never met from others as everyone dependent on their mode of fluctuations in Guna’s.

    Thank you Swamiji for giving us the root cause of others not meeting the expectations of ours. Looking forward to listen more…

  7. Very important point that expectations can never be met all the time as the gunas are fluctuating within everyone.Thank you Swamiji.

  8. Above average explanation of what causes friction in relationships! Such an interesting explanation rooted in an age old tradition that can be understood with right teacher.

  9. Three gunas keep on influencing our nature.. this battle of gunas change iur day to actions. Hence we should keep ourselves engaged in positive environment and sadhana.

  10. So logical and with that in consciousness sooo many situations can be handled better and in a correct manner.

  11. Thank you Swamiji for giving the knowledge from the vedas about our mind and the nature of the world. The knowledge of 3 Gunas are really beneficial.

  12. Swamiji says that our mind is made up of maya which influences our gunas. Thus, conflicts occur in relationships because our gunas are different from each other so we do not think alike. Thank you, Swamiji!

  13. Very true, as long as the three Gunas conflict, expectations can never be met all the in a relationship. The understanding of this fact is very important in solving relationship problems.

  14. What a thought provoking clip! #SwamiMukundananda starts by stating that our expectations cannot be met by everyone all the time. He then delves into this further and uses the concepts explained by Shree Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita (https://www.holy-bhagavad-gita.org/), specifically, Chapters 14 and 17, to explain how our ever changing temperament impacts our behavior and consequently expectations.

  15. 🙏🏻 Pranam Guruji ! It’s very true and awesome advice to all of us. Swamiji we should follow your practical ,affordable and very useful advice.! 🙏🏻
