“The mode of Passion”, means motion and is seen as the positive (+), fiery, outgoing principle. Rajas can be compared to the masculine Yang energy in the Traditional Chinese Medicine. Rajasic foods usually come to play with hard labour as they support physical endurance and a resolute state of mind. They contain garlic, chile, caffeine (from coffee, black tea and chocolate), eggs, high quality meat, alcohol and fermented or freshly canned foods. Foods made in anger, fried foods or over-cooked Sattvic foods also get Rajastic qualities.
The mind in the Rajasic state is fierce and passionate, putting all its force into something but can easily be frustrated if the goal isn’t accomplished.
