Rajas (Maintenance operator)
Description
"Through centuries of observing both cosmic and human behavior, ancient ayurvedic healers defined three basic gunas or qualities that influence everything that happens in the macrocosm of the universe or the microcosm of our minds. It's the quantity of these three gunas Sattva, Rajas and Tamas that ayurvedic healers believed can create or destroy harmony in our lives:   "Rajas stands for action. In cosmic terms, Rajas is responsible for maintenance and nurturing of what has been created. In human beings, the Rajasic guna or quality means giving a concrete shape to dreams, being motivated and taking action. Excess of Rajas, however, leads to an unsettled and perpetually restless mind."   -- See more at: http://www.mapi.com/ayurvedic-knowledge/brain-power/creating-a-balanced-mind.html#gsc.tab=0
