MIND : ITS MYSTERIES AND CONTROL : 14-10.



Chapter 14 -SAMSKARAM-S :- 10.

10. Thoughts And Desires Depend Upon Samskaras


The nature of desires and thoughts depends upon the nature of your Samskaras.

If you have good Samskaras, you will have good desires and good thoughts and vice versa.

Even if you have indulged in vicious actions up to the age of forty, begin practising virtuous actions such as charity, Japa, Dama, Svadhyaya, meditation, service of the poor and the sick, service of saints, etc., from this moment and these Samskaras will prompt you to do more virtuous deeds.

They will stimulate good desires and noble thoughts.



The Lord says in the Bhagavad-Gita:-


Api  chet  suduracharah  bhajate   mam-ananyabhak,


Sadhureva   sa mantavyah   samyag-vyavasito   hi   sah.  (IX-30)

Meaning :-

"Even if the most sinful worships Me with undivided heart, he too must be deemed righteous, for he has rightly resolved."
