MIND : ITS MYSTERIES AND CONTROL : 12-1.



Chapter-12. THEORY OF PERCEPTION : 1.

1.Introduction-

“When one thinks, then he understands; without having thought, one does not know; it is only after having thought that one understands.”

(Chhandogya Upanishad, VII-xxi-1)


“I was absent-minded; I did not hear. I was absent-minded; I did not see. It is thus evident that a person sees with the mind, hears with the mind.

Desire, determination, uncertainty, belief, disbelief, steadiness, unsteadiness, shame, intellect, fear—all these are in the mind alone.

Therefore, when touched from behind, a person knows by the mind.

(Brihadaranyaka Upanishad, I-v-3)



There are two compartments in the mind, viz., the thinking portion and the perceiving portion.

It is easy to stop the thinking portion, but it is extremely difficult to stop the functioning of the perceiving portion.
