MIND : ITS MYSTERIES AND CONTROL :3. (b).





Chapter 3 -MIND, PRANA AND KUNDALINI :


(b). INTER-DEPENDENCE OF MIND AND PRANA :



Prana and mind stand to one another in the relationship of the supporter and the supported.

Both these are only like the flower and its odour or a sesamum seed and the oil in it.

If either of them is slain, then the other also will cease to exist.

If the mind and Prana cease to exist, then thoughts will not arise at all.

The destruction of both will confer Moksha on all.



Ekagrata (one-pointedness) and Nirodha (controlled state) are two Avasthas of the mind.

Spanda (subtle or Sukshma) and Nirodha are two Avasthas of the Prana.

When the mind becomes one-pointed, Spanda Avastha of the Prana comes by itself.

If the mind is purified with true Sattva Guna, the Prana will be distributed freely throughout the body.

The food will be digested thoroughly.
