MIND : ITS MYSTERIES AND CONTROL : 10-5.1.
Chapter-10. SUDDHA MANAS AND ASUDDHA MANAS-5.
5. SLAY THE IMPURE MIND : 1.
The enemy of Atman is the impure mind, which is replete with excessive delusion and a host of thoughts.
This mischievous and powerful imp of lower mind is the generator of all pains and all fears and the destroyer of all noble, spiritual wealth.
Your real enemy is this impure mind only which is full of delusion, Trishnas, Vasanas and host of other impurities.
Lest this enemy of mind should spoil you in diverse ways through the enjoyments of the many pleasures in this world, slay it in the hope of getting eternal bliss and spiritual illumination.
Destroy the lower Asuddha (impure) Manas through the higher Suddha Manas.
Destroy your instinctive mind through discrimination and help of your higher, Sattvic mind.
Then and then alone will you get eternal, infinite peace and bliss of Atman.
Then alone will you become a Jivanmukta.
