MIND : ITS MYSTERIES AND CONTROL : 9-2.




Chapter - 9. THE THREE DOSHAS : 2.

The mind is tossed about among objects of love and hatred like a light feather in a stormy wind.

It ever whirls far and wide in vain among sensual objects away from the association with the wise, like a strolling city dog; but, no results accrue therefrom.

This baneful mind whirls at the sight of its much-coveted immense wealth.

This ferocious dog of mind, following its mate of desire, ever preys upon poor, ignorant worldlings as on carcasses.

It will flit in a moment from Howrah to Paris and from Colombo to Berlin.

Not resting on any object firmly, it is characterised by an excessive fluctuating power.

It will fluctuate and be confused, will flit away from an object and then return to it, will rejoice in vain and be intoxicated with Ahankara.

A mind becomes a prey to fear through its fluctuation.


The mind should be rendered fit for salvation, fit to approach its Adhishthana (substratum), its father, Brahman. Remove the three Doshas.


Mala (such as Kama, Krodha, Lobha, Moha, Mada, Matsarya) is removed by doing Nishkama Karma. Mala means sin also.
