Triple-Attributive Human Nature


We learn from Vaidic scriptures that the Nature in its virgin form is balanced with two parts of goodness (Sattwa), one part of defensive spirit (Raja) against evils, and one part of destroying the evil forces (Tama). With this balance, everything remains calm, quiet and in order for the evil forces remaining fully controlled and goodness prevailing the environment. This applies to every society or any other naturally-evolved system. Same balance is present in personality of a newly born baby working fully under control of his/her natural instincts for survival and growth.
Then come formal and informal education into play, with grasped part of it by an individual called his/her intuition. Major parts of both the education and the intuition being artificially maneuvered by seniors of the person may be right or wrong, having one or more of the above-said trio of attributes deficient or in excess. Hence the balance may not exist, causing disturbances one way or another, whether it is a social order or an individual's personality, or a medicinal material. The disturbance is the cause of all the motions.
Under balance of three attributes, everything remains calm and quiet, materials remain non-reactive, society peaceful, and individuals just survive through procreation. The situation is what is often called the Nature (Prakriti).
Humanity moved differently from keeping the natural balance through gradual evolution of individual intellect and social civilization to add comforts and conveniences to human life - for producing more results with less effort. With every individual trying to find more comforts and conveniences, they began competing with each other, leading to exploitation of less resourceful by those becoming more resourceful. This added more distortions to human education systems, hence more disturbed individual intuitions. In the din of disturbances, the balance of three attributes was forgotten.

Female and Male

Every individual being has attributes of both male and female. A person is commonly known to be a male or a female based on what attribute dominates in his/her body. But what we mean here by male and female are the basic attributes constituting a persona. Female attribute is the procreative force (Prakriti) attained through balance of three attributes of goodness, defense (of the self) and destruction (of the enemy). For this balance, the female attribute is not active, hence needs external support for protection of the self.
In contrast with female, the maleness has an unbalance of the three attributes of goodness, defense and destruction, with one or more attribute dominating the personality. This imbalance eliminates his procreative capability, and makes the person active, and principally work as procreator through the procreative female. Thus, the male can't procreate by himself but needs a female body as medium of procreation. Conversely, the female can't procreate without the active male. This mutual dependence of male and female attributes for procreation makes the two complementary to each other. In-spite of complementation, the male attribute is always an active ingredient while the female attribute is its passive complement. This also supports my earlier derivation 'whyhumanity is male-dominated'.

Genesis of Attribute Thesis

The above-said three-attribute thesis was framed during Vaidic Era through study of 4 female personalities of those days - Swastika, Seetaa, Lakshmee and Saraswati, wives of four sons of Purooravaa of Deva race - Brahmaa, Raama, Vishnu and Lakshmana, respectively, the founder of the first Nation on the Earth on Indian subcontinent. Until that time, only city states existed. Brahmaa was not only the seniormost but most innovative theorist and scientific thinker. With unprecedented development of the Nation, many wild races came to land with malicious intentions of establishing their political domination on the land and people for their exploitation. Four prominent of these wild races were Yadu, Asura, Dravida and Yavan forming a junta against the Deva race. Their leaders killed Brahmaa. This raised a thunderous revolution in minds of Deva race people for getting prepared for defense of the self and destroying the enemy, as only their goodness was not enough for moving on their mission.

While Seetaa and Saraswati took charge of Goodness attribute (Sattwam), Swastika took charge of Defense attribute (Raja) with form of Durgaa, and mighty Lakshmee took charge of destroying the enemies with form of Kaali. With this organizational setup, they continued on the path of development with crowning of Chandra Gupta Maurya as the Emperor of Indian Nation. Thus, the three-attribute thesis was established and materialized.
