Analyze Your Mental Constitution (Manas Prakriti)

Do this questionnaire to analyze your state of mind. Please circle which is applicable to your mental constitution.  Add up the number of each quality and give yourself a score. Ayurveda aims at moving the mind from Tamas to Rajas and then to Sattva. That is from an ignorant physical state, to one of vitality and expression, then to peace and enlightenment. A person in a tamasic state requires Rajasic activity to break up the inertia; a person in a Rajasic state requires satvic activity to calm them. A satvic person is content.
