MIND : ITS MYSTERIES AND CONTROL : 11-5-2.


Chapter -11. VRITTIS - 5.

5. DESTRUCTION OF VRITTIS LEADS TO MENTAL STRENGTH -2.

When the mind runs from one object to another,

that state in the interval wherein you become mindless for a very short time is Svarupasthiti.

That is Brahmam.

When the mind is controlled fully, Vrittis cease.

When all the modifications subside, you enter into the silence then and then alone.

Realise this, this very moment.

Feel the divine glory and Brahmic splendour now by closing the eyes,

by drawing the Indriyas,

by stilling the mind,

by silencing the thoughts,

by sharpening the intellect,

by purifying the Chitta,

by meditating on Om,

by chanting Om with Bhava (feeling).

Keep up the continuity of Brahmic consciousness throughout the 24 hours.

Have an unceasing flow of Atmic consciousness.

 This is very, very important.

This is a sine qua non.

This is a great desideratum.
