MIND : ITS MYSTERIES AND CONTROL : 13-4-1.



Chapter 13-CHITTA AND MEMORY-4-1.

 4. HOW DOES MEMORY ARISE-1.


Suppose you have received a nice fan as a present from your amiable friend.

When you use the fan, it sometimes reminds you of your friend. You think of him for a Smriti-Hetu (cause of memory).



If your brother is a tall man, the sight of a similar tall man in another place will bring to your mind the memory of your brother.

This is memory due to the similarity of objects (Sadrisyata).



Suppose you have seen a dwarf at Madras ( Chennai ).

When you see a very tall man or Patagonian, this will remind you of the dwarf whom you saw at Madras ( Chennai ).

The sight of a big palace will remind you of a peasant’s hut or a Sannyasin’s grass hut on the bank of Ganga.

This memory is due to dissimilarity in objects (Viparitata).
