MIND : ITS MYSTERIES AND CONTROL : 21.5


Chapter-21. Desires -5

5. Anirbuddha Or Subtle, Hidden Desires

Even after you have renounced all the desires, there may remain in the mind some subtle, hidden desires (Sukshma, Anirbuddha) that cannot be comprehended.

These are very dangerous ones.

Therefore, you will have to be very, very careful.

The lurking under-currents of desires will throw you down at any moment if you are not very vigilant and cautious, will destroy your Vairagya (dispassion) and will bring about your downfall eventually.

I have witnessed many Yogabhrashtas who had fallen from Yoga owing to the overpowering influence of these subtle, hidden desires.

So long as you have these subtle, hidden, Anirbuddha (unnoticeable) desires in your mind, you can never dream of entering into the Nirvikalpa state without any modification of the mind.

You can never develop real Paravairagya (supreme non-attachment and dispassion) also.
