|Chapter 14||The Three Qualities of Material Nature||Verse 11|
Rudra Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Now Lord Krishna delineates the developed characteristics of sattva guna or mode of goodness by explaining that when the five sense s no longer exercise there search for sense gratification but instead focus their attention to the experiencing the atma or immortal soul; then the light of knowledge radiates througfh them and by this manifestation it can be ascertained that sattva guna is predominant within a jiva or embodied being. Also by the signs of happiness and effulgence.
Brahma Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Sri Vaisnava Sampradaya:
When the light of jnana or knowledge is seen to be dominate in all the channels of the body and the senses such as seeing and hearing; then an accurate perception of reality as it is naturally occurs. Lord Krishna confirms that this is indicative that sattva guna or the mode of goodness is predominant.
Kumara Vaisnava Sampradaya:
One can recognise the presence of the three gunas or modes of material nature by their productive effects. Lord Krishna states that when the gates of the physical body which are the senses such as the eyes and ears, etc. by which one perceives light and sound achieve a sense of dispassion and discerment then arise s the light of true perception and it symbolises that sattva guna or the mode of goodness is predominant based on its feeling of well being and happiness.
