To repeat the method employed for solving vexing technical problems...

I have control over action initiated by the gunas, but not over the results of action because the doshic results are a mirage - they don't exist independent of their causative gunic interplay.

I can analyze a technical mystery by analyzing its diagnostic results, but its solution requires thinking about the cause of the mystery at the core of its manifestation - at the level of the gunas. Doshas are what is diagnosed, but causation is what is infered from the doshas.

And since all gunic interplay proceeds on a rock solid bed of evenness without any hint of manifestation to begin with - purusha; pure being - awareness and familiarity with the purushic fourth guna is mandatory in a manner which is entirely innocent so that mind be not divided between attending to its base reference along with its object of focus, but remain one-pointed instead.
