MIND : ITS MYSTERIES AND CONTROL : 11-1.4.




Chapter -11. VRITTIS-1.

1. VRITTI—  ITS NATURE AND FUNCTION-4.

According to Raja Yoga of Maharshi Patanjali,

Pramana (right notion or right proof),

Viparyaya (misconception),

Vikalpa (fancy or imagination),

Nidra (sleep)

and Smriti (memory)

are the five mental Vrittis or mental functions.

If these five mental functions are suppressed,

the suppression of desires and other functions will follow.
