MIND : ITS MYSTERIES AND CONTROL : 20.4.



Chapter 20 Vasanas :4.

4. Eradication, Not Suppression, The Proper Remedy

A Vasana may be suppressed for the time being by an aspirant.

But it again manifests with redoubled force when a suitable opportunity arises.

Like a minister obeying the king, the five organs of the body act in accordance with the dictates of the mind.

Therefore, you should through your own pure mind and proper efforts eradicate the Vasanas for objects.

You should rend asunder, the long rope of Vasanas tied to the vessels of man, whirled on the ocean of Samsara, through enormous efforts on your part.

Vasanas should be thoroughly eradicated.

If these Vasanas are destroyed by Vichara (enquiry of Atman) and discrimination, the mind which is ever restless will get quiescence like a gheeless lamp.
