Chapter -11. VRITTIS-3.

3.KINDS OF VRITTI - 1.

Vrittis have been classified into five kinds:

(1) Mano-Vritti,

(2) Buddhi Vritti,

(3) Sakshi Vritti,

(4) Akhandakara Vritti and

(5) Akhanda Ekarasa Vritti.

No. 1 belongs to the instinctive mind.

Nos. 2, 3, 4 and 5 belong to the Sattvic mind.

Mano-Vritti is the Vishayakara Vritti of worldlings.

Buddhi Vritti belongs to Vivekins.

When you identify yourself with the Sakshi Vritti, you can witness the modifications of the mind.

When you try to feel that you are the Infinite Self, the Akhandakara Vritti is generated.

It is also known as Brahmakara Vritti.

There is no Vritti in Brahman.
