Chapter 19 - Thought-Culture-2.1

2. Benefits Of Thought-Control-1

Thoughts lead to action.

Thoughts are the sources of all actions.

Thought is the real Karma.

Thinking is the real action.

If you can root out all evil thoughts in the beginning, you will not do any evil action.

If you can nip them in the bud, you will be free from the miseries and tribulations of this world.

Watch your thoughts with vigilance and introspection.

Thought is the real action.

 Activities of the mind are the real Karmas.

Once the Vikshepa of the mind vanishes, you will get good Nishtha (meditation).

The mind will be very, very calm.

Get rid of the impurities of the mind.

Have mastery over the mind.

Then all the miseries of the Samsara with births and deaths will come to an end.

If you free yourself from the clutches of the mind, Moksha (liberation) will come by itself. There is no doubt about this.
