MIND : ITS MYSTERIES AND CONTROL : 19-9-1
Chapter 19 - Thought-Culture-9-1
9. Destruction of Sankalpas-1
Raja Yoga teaches Yogas-chittavrittinirodhah :-
"Yoga is the restraint of the mental modifications."
It gives you the power of expelling the thoughts or, if need be, of killing them dead on the spot.
Naturally, the art requires practice, but like other arts, when once acquired, there is no mystery or difficulty about it.
It is worth practising.
Mark how one Sankalpa expands into many Sankalpas (imaginations) in a short time.
Suppose you get a Sankalpa to have a tea-party for your friends.
One thought of tea invites instantaneously the thoughts of sugar, milk, tea-cups, tables, chairs, table-cloth, napkins, spoons, sweetmeats, salted things, etc.
So this world is nothing but the expansion of Sankalpas.
