MIND : ITS MYSTERIES AND CONTROL : 14-1.




Chapter 14 -SAMSKARAM-S : 1.

1.WHAT IS SAMSKARAM?


Vritti (whirlpool, thought-wave) arises in the mind-ocean.

It operates for sometime.

Then it sinks below the threshold of normal consciousness.

From the surface of the conscious mind wherein it was uppermost for some time, it sinks down deep into the region of the subconscious mind (Chitta).

There, it continues to be a subliminal action and becomes a Samskaram (impression).

A conscious action-whether cognitive, affective or conative—assumes a potential and hidden (Sukshma and Avyakta) form just below the threshold of consciousness.

This is termed a Samskaram.
