The three gunas ---- satva,rajas,and tamas ---- are the primal constituents of Prakriti (or Maya). They balance one another in its potential state. This is a state of equilibrium of the gunas. Prakriti (or Maya) becomes operative with the disturbance of this equilibrium, which releases the latent force that is behind all of its manifestations. The gunas form a triad. It is the predominance of one or another in varying degrees that causes all transformations.
