Chapter 16-Thought Creates The World-4.

4. The Jiva and the universe are Brahman in their innate condition only.

(ii).Reality Of The Universe Lies In Sankalpa Of Manas-4.

The happiness and misery experienced in this world are caused by the working of the mind.

All the hosts of pains and pleasures arise from the mind only.

They will perish if the mind perishes through stainless discrimination and spiritual Sadhana.

The three worlds are created for the pleasures and pains of the mind.

Suspension of the mental activity will cause the three worlds to disappear with their misery.

With the destruction of the mind, all the three periods of time vanish into nothing.

By controlling the mind, all occult powers are acquired.

If the mind is not controlled, all else become useless and painful.

Therefore, the mind should be annihilated.
