YOGA VASISHTHA | MITRA | VOL 2.1 | BOOK III | CHAP CX

|| VERSE 29 | DESCRIPTION OF MIND ||

The waking mind deems the objects of its desire , to be as sweet as honey , and whatever it does not like , to be as bitter as gall , although they may be sweet to taste .


YOGA VASISHTHA | MITRA | VOL 2.1 | BOOK III | CHAP CX

|| VERSE 30 | DESCRIPTION OF MIND ||

Some minds with too much self reliance in themselves , and without considering the true nature of things , give them different forms and colours , according to their own conceptions and opinions , though they are far from truth .


YOGA VASISHTHA | MITRA | VOL 2.1 | BOOK III | CHAP CX

|| VERSE 46 | DESCRIPTION OF MIND ||

As the leaves and branches , flowers and fruits are the products of the shooting seed , so every thing that is seen in our waking dreams , is the creations of our minds .


YOGA VASISHTHA | MITRA | VOL 2.1 | BOOK III | CHAP CX

|| VERSE 47 | DESCRIPTION OF MIND ||

As a golden image is no other than the very gold , so the creatures of our living dreams , are not otherwise than the creations of our fanciful minds .


YOGA VASISHTHA | MITRA | VOL 2.1 | BOOK III | CHAP CX

|| VERSE 48 | DESCRIPTION OF MIND ||

As a drop or shower of rain , and a foam or froth of the wave , are but different forms of water , so the varieties of sensible objects are but formations of the same mind .


YOGA VASISHTHA | MITRA | VOL 2.1 | BOOK III | CHAP CX

|| VERSE 58 | DESCRIPTION OF MIND ||

As it is the greater or lighter pressure of the oil mill , that thickens or thins the oil , so it is the deeper or lighter attention of the mind , that aggravates or lightens its sense of pleasure or pain .


YOGA VASISHTHA | MITRA | VOL 2.1 | BOOK III | CHAP CXI

|| VERSE 02-03 | HEALING OF THE HEART AND MIND ||

It is by the exertion of your own consciousness by yourself , and by diligent relinquishment of the best objects of your desire , that you can bring back your refractory mind under your subjection .

One who remains at rest by giving up the objects of one's desire , is verily the conqueror of one's mind .


YOGA VASISHTHA | MITRA | VOL 2.1 | BOOK III | CHAP CXI

|| VERSE 04 | HEALING OF THE HEART AND MIND ||

The mind is to be carefully treated as a patient by the prescriptions of reason , and by discriminating the truth from untruth , as we do good diet from what is injurious .


YOGA VASISHTHA | MITRA | VOL 2.1 | BOOK III | CHAP CXI

|| VERSE 10-11 | HEALING OF THE HEART AND MIND ||

It is possible to govern the mind like a horse , by one's attention and exertion ; and the mind being brought to its quietness , it is easy to enter into divine knowledge .

Shame on that jackass who < : It is ignorance that one : > has not the power to subdue one's restless mind , which is entirely under one's subjection , and which one can easily govern .


YOGA VASISHTHA | MITRA | VOL 2.1 | BOOK III | CHAP CXI

|| VERSE 13 | HEALING OF THE HEART AND MIND ||

It is by means of destroying the appetites of the mind , by means of reason and knowledge of truth , that one can have one's absolute dominion over it , without any change or rival in it .


YOGA VASISHTHA | MITRA | VOL 2.1 | BOOK III | CHAP CXI

|| VERSE 15 | HEALING OF THE HEART AND MIND ||

The One All and All-Pervading Quiescent BRAHMAN can be known , then only , when the desires of the mind are all cut off by the weapon of indifference to all worldly things .
