Srimad Bhagavad Gita, a guiding light for hinduism and all the religions, explains knowledge as assimilation of scriptural wisdom not being rooted in religious rituals. Srimad Bhagavad Gita categorizes knowledge as pure (sattvik), passionate (rajasik) & dull (tamasik). As per Gita, pure knowledge leads to an “action” which is ordained, which is free from attachment, which is done without love or hatred, by one who is not desirous of the fruit. Passionate or rajasik knowledge sees in all beings various entities of distinct kinds and as different from one another. Tamasik or dull knowledge clings to one single effects, as if it were the whole, without reason, without foundation in truth, and narrow. To the individual with a Sattvik intellect the leper and the prince, the sick and the healthy, the rich and the poor are so many different parts of his own spiritual personality only. Such an individual serves the world in a sense of self-fulfillment and inspired joy. People with tamasik (dull) knowledge are confused & loaded with fixed ideas and they not only fail to see things as they are, but invariably project their own ideas upon the world and judge it all wrongly. In fact, a man of Tamasik intellect views the world as if it is meant for him and his pleasures alone and will ask what has the company, society or the nation done for me. Whereas man with pure (sattvik) intellect asks what have I done today for my company, society and the nation.
