5. THE VEDANTIC THEORY-3.
There is Chaitanya associated with the Vritti (Vritti Sahita Chaitanya).
This Chaitanya illuminates the object .mango..
This is termed Phala-Vyapti.
Just as a torchlight illumines an object in a flash, this Vritti-Chaitanya illumines the object.
Then only does perception of the mango take place.
Mind makes Sankalpa-Vikalpa : -
Is this a mango or not?
Buddhi comes to help the mind and determines (this is a mango) through previous experience.
Chitta makes Anusandhana (enquiry) :-
How can I get the mango?
May I ask the gardener or the proprietor? .
Ahankara asserts :-
I must get the mango anyhow. I want it..
Then the command is given by the mind to the Karma-Indriyas for execution.
