MIND : ITS MYSTERIES AND CONTROL : 11- 4 - 2.


Chapter -11. VRITTIS - 4.

4. ANTARMUKHA VRITTI AND BAHIRMUKHA VRITTI-2.

You will get Antarmukha Vritti (inward-moving mind) only after you have destroyed all the externalising powers of the mind.

Vairagya and introspection help a lot in the attainment of this mental state.

You must starve the mind by Vairagya and Tyaga (renunciation of desires, objects and egoism).

You must learn the art of making the mind introspective or turned inward upon itself through the Yogic Kriya, Pratyahara (abstraction).

Just as you have to take back with care your cloth that is fallen on a thorny plant by removing the thorns one by one slowly,

so also you will have to collect back with care and exertion the dissipated rays of the mind that are thrown over the sensual objects for very many years.
