MIND : ITS MYSTERIES AND CONTROL : 20.1.2




Chapter 20 Vasanas : 1.2

1. Vasanas-how They Manifest-2.

The whole mango tree with branches, leaves and fruits is contained in a subtle form in the seed.

It takes time for manifestation.

Even so, the Vasana of lust lurks in the mind when you are a boy,

manifests at 18,

fills the whole body at 25,

works havoc from 25 to 45

and then it gradually declines.

Various forms of wrong-doing and mischief are done by human beings between 25 and 45.

This is the most critical period of life.

There is no particular difference between a boy and a girl in their characteristics when they are young.

After attaining puberty they exhibit their characteristic qualities.
