Bhagwad Gita

Radhey Radhey,
I have been reading the Bhagwad Gita, the song of God, the commentary by Swami Mukundananda, a preacher of Shree Maharajji. In going through 14th chapter that describes the three modes of nature, i had some questions, which are as follows

  1. One verse says that the sattva guna binds us through attachment to happiness and knowledge. In the other verse, it is written that rajo guna is the nature of raag( attachment). So, if attachment is due to rajo guna, then how could sattva guna create attachment to knowledge and happiness?
  2. There is repetition of the word agyan  while describing tamo guna. Does this word mean “the absence of knowledge ” or ” the presence of incorrect knowledge”? The absence of  knowledge does not necessarily mean the presence of incorrect knowledge. Thanks for the reply. Radhe Radhe.
