MIND : ITS MYSTERIES AND CONTROL : 20.5.3.




Chapter 20 Vasanas :5.3.

5. How To Destroy Vasanas.3.

3. Svadhyaya and Meditation

Increase your Sastra-Vasana in the beginning.

Occupy your mind with the study of standard philosophical books.

Thereby you can decrease your Deha-Vasana (thought of the body) and Loka-Vasana (desire for name and fame, Kirti, Pratishtha, etc). Later on, you will have to give up Sastra-Vasana also.

You must entirely devote all your time and energy in meditation and meditation alone.

Vasana-Kshaya (destruction of Vasanas) is caused through well-conducted deliberation (Vichara), Brahma-Dhyana, Vairagya and Tyaga.
