MIND : ITS MYSTERIES AND CONTROL : 19-13.
Chapter 19 -Thought-Culture-13.
Fully realise for yourself the grave and ruinous consequences of evil thoughts.
This will set you on your guard when the evil thoughts would come.
The moment they come,
exert yourself or divert the mind to some other object of divine thoughts,
prayer or Japa.
A real earnestness to drive away the evil thoughts will keep you on the alert so much so that even if they appear in dream,
you will at once wake up.
Should the enemy appear when you are awake,
it will not be very difficult for you to cope with him,
if only you are sufficiently watchful.
