Qualities of Sattva, Rajas and Tamas – Sariraka Upanishad

Non-violence, truth, non-theft, continence and non-possession, absence of anger, service to elders, cleanliness, contentment and honesty, non-conceit, candor, faith and non-injury are the qualities of Sattva.
I am the doer, enjoyer, speaker, am conceited these are the qualities of Rajas.
Sleep, laziness, delusion, attachment, sex and theft are the qualities of Tamas.
The person of Sattva is above, of Rajas is in the middle and of Tamas, low.
Right knowledge is Sattvika; of rituals, Rajasa; blindness, Tamasa.
