Puranas are supposed to have one of three gunas - Sattva, Rajas and Tamas. Commentators like Ludo Rocher have found this classification to be "fanciful".

have other categories of scripture like Brahmanas, Upanishads etc. have been classified along similar lines?

  • Tantras/Agamas too apparently has such a classification – Rickross Feb 27 at 11:54
