Human mind is very fickle. It moves from one object to another, from one desire to another. It sways as per the three modes (Gunas) of nature. Three modes of nature are Sattva (goodness), Rajas (passion) and Tamas (ignorance). In Sattva (goodness) mode mind sees all things in right perspective, while in Rajas (passion) mode mind is not able to determine what is right or what is wrong, while in Tamas (ignorance) mode mind sees wrong to be right.

In Sattva (goodness) mode mind worships the God & does good to all human beings always, while in Rajas (passion) mode mind indulges in passionate sensual pleasures, while in Tamas (ignorance) mode mind does all the wrong things & believes wrong to be right.

When the mode of goodness becomes prominent, it defeats the modes of passion and ignorance. When the mode of passion becomes prominent, it defeats goodness and ignorance, and at other times ignorance defeats goodness and passion. In this way there is always competition for supremacy among the three modes of nature.

But when the human mind is pointed towards God only, then mode of goodness becomes prominent always & the other modes i.e. passion & ignorance cannot touch it in anyway. Person in devotion to God is always rescued from the other two modes i.e. passion & ignorance.

So Hey God, You steal my mind & put it in devotion of Yourself so that it can always be in Sattva (goodness) mode & does not hanker towards passion or ignorance. Hey God, please please Steal My Mind & put it in devotion of Yourself.

Below are few verses of Bhagwat Gita which explain about the three modes of nature i.e. Sattva (goodness), Rajas (passion) and Tamas (ignorance) & how these three modes of nature empower the human mind.

"sattvam rajas tama iti
Gunnah prakriti-sambhavah
nibadhnanti maha-baho
dehe dehinam avyayam" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Fourteen verse 5)

"Sri Krishna said: O Arjuna, Material nature consists of three modes—Sattva (goodness), Rajas (passion) and Tamas (ignorance). When the eternal living entity comes in contact with nature, he becomes conditioned by these three modes."

"rajas tamas chabhibhuya
sattvam bhavati bharata
rajah sattvam tamas chaiva
tamah sattvam rajas tatha" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Fourteen verse 10)

"Sri Krishna said: O Arjuna, Sometimes the mode of goodness becomes prominent, defeating the modes of passion and ignorance. Sometimes the mode of passion defeats goodness and ignorance, and at other times ignorance defeats goodness and passion. In this way there is always competition for supremacy."
