MIND : ITS MYSTERIES AND CONTROL : 14-7-2..
Chapter 14 -SAMSKARAM-S :-7-2.
7. Past Samskaras Constitute Prarabdha-2.
All Samskaras lie dormant in the Chitta as latent activities, not only of this life but of all previous innumerable lives from Anadi Kala (beginningless time).
The Samskaras of animal life (those of dog's births, etc.), the Samskaras of a Deva life, the Samskaras of kingly life, the Samskaras of the life of a peasant, are all hidden there in the Chitta.
In human life, only those Samskaras which are appropriate to that particular type of birth will operate and come to play.
The other kinds of Samskaras will remain concealed and dormant.
"As a merchant closing the year's ledger and opening a new one,
does not enter in the new all the items of the old but only its balances,
so does the spirit hand over to the new brain his judgments on the experiences of a life that is closed,
the conclusions to which he has come,
the decisions to which he has arrived.
This is the stock handed on to the new life,
the mental furniture for the new dwelling-a real memory."
