Swami Tejomayananda Thoughts on Tamasika Knowledge

Education can only be imparted, whereas knowledge has to be discovered or found. Education prepares one for only some aspects of life. It may get one a job, provide one with material comforts, but only knowledge prepares one to face life squarely and bring about the transformation that makes him/her a new person.
“Knowledge” in Sanskrit is called jnana. The Bhagavad Gita classifies knowledge into three different categories — sattvika, rajasika and tamasika.
People, who are under the influence of Tamasika Jnana, mistake a part for the whole and get attached to that part alone. All thoughts and actions reflect this baser vision. The feeling that my path alone is right and yours is wrong is one example. People with such a vision can become intolerant and fanatic. For one who thinks in a narrow and petty way, there are always conflicts. This is tamasika jnana.
