Hinduism identifies three types of man based on gunas or character. A spiritual guidance of a receptive nature conducts his life with the preordained power and knowledge.

A great deal of man’s variance of character springs from his destiny, environment and his guidance. Perhaps if a man experiences through his lethargic habit and character the lower instincts of life then his destiny is directly due to where he places his faith and therefore cultivates the Tamo /Tamas guna. This is merely a relative evaluation.

Another man whose faith when attached to materialistic pleasures and self- gratification, develops an inherent nature of attachment and he believes the results to be of paramount importance from an egoistic point of view. His mind and heart will naturally follow his chosen and accustomed way. In this he places his faith and cultivates the Rajo/ Rajas guna.

Finally, a third kind of man who has unquestioning faith in God, and naturally in his hour of need, he will call on “God” and receive his assistance from that ‘Brahman’. This man’s Faith is in the Divine. This must be natural, spontaneous and genuine. This may be a preordained Satva/Sattva guna.

Therefore, faith remains spontaneous in the three examples whilst each man’s application appears different. The unaccepted truth is that many of us think that our mould of character is destined and nothing can change it. Man fails to understand the three gunas/Character identified act as guidance and the people should plan their lives and advocate good habits.
