Samkhya philosophers say that life exists for the purpose of acquiring experience and knowing the Self. The gunas are meant to facilitate this spiritual endeavor. They reveal, conceal, and stir us up. Identifying the sattvic, rajasic, and tamasic aspects of a yoga pose is a surefire method for advancing your practice.
