MIND : ITS MYSTERIES AND CONTROL : 15-1-2.




 Chapter 15- Sankalpa : 1.2.

1. The Operation Of Thought-2.

The sacred Ganga takes its origin in Gangotri (Himalayas) and runs perennially towards Ganga Sagar.

Similarly, thought-currents take their origin from the bed of Samskaras (impressions) in the mind, wherein are imbedded the Vasanas (latent subtle desires), and flow incessantly towards the objects both in waking state and dream.

Even a railway engine is sent to the engine-shed for rest when the wheels become overhot.

But, this mysterious engine of mind goes on thinking without a moment's rest.

The expansion of this mind alone is Sankalpa; and, Sankalpa, through its power of differentiation, generates this universe.


Ajnanins have fickle minds with a great deal of fluctuation and myriads of Sankalpas.

Their minds ever vacillate through Sankalpas.

But, Jnanins will be free from Sankalpas.

They will be ever resting in their Atmic Jnana (Jnana-Svarupa) which gives the highest satisfaction (Tripti) and Supreme Peace (Parama Santi).

Next : 2. Sankalpa Only Is Samsara
