MIND : ITS MYSTERIES AND CONTROL : 14-14.
Chapter 14 -SAMSKARAS :- 14.
14. Sadhana Consists In Destroying The Samskaras
The aim of a Sadhaka is to fry out or burn or obliterate all these Samskaras through Nirbija Samadhi.
Sadhana consists in wiping out the Samskaras.
Breathing, hearing, seeing, feeling, tasting, smelling-all cause Samskaras or latent Smriti in the mind.
The world enters the mind through the eyes, ears, tongue (speech) and old Samskaras.
If you remain in seclusion, you can shut out the first three doors.
Through Vichara (right enquiry of Supreme Self), you can destroy the fourth route.
Then, Jnana (Knowledge of Self) will dawn. A Jnani is without Samskaras.
They are fried out by Jnana.
No doubt, the force of the Samskaras remains in the Antahkarana.
But they are harmless.
They will not bind the Jnani.
