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

|| VERSE 30-31 | HEALING OF THE HEART & MIND ||

It has been repeatedly mentioned both before and afterwards , and in many other places ( of this work ) ; that there is no other means of obtaining the pure diet of True Knowledge , without subduing the mind .

I repeat the same lesson , that there is no other way , save by the government of the unruly mind , to come to the light of the truly real , clear and universal Knowledge of the Supreme .


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

|| VERSE 46 | HEALING OF THE HEART & MIND ||

Opulence in expectancy , is full of anxiety to the mind , and the expected wealth when gained is no less troublesome to it ; but the treasure of contentment is fraught with lasting peace of mind , therefore be victorious over your greedy mind by abandonment of all your desires .


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

|| VERSE 07 | RESTLESSNESS OF THE MIND & ITS CURE ||

As the essence of air is imperceptible without its vibration , so we can have no notion of the momentum of our minds , apart from the idea of their oscillation .


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

|| VERSE 08 | RESTLESSNESS OF THE MIND & ITS CURE ||

The mind which has no motion is said to be dead and defunct ; and the suspension of mental agitation , is the condition of Yoga quietism


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

|| VERSE 09 | RESTLESSNESS OF THE MIND & ITS CURE ||

The mortification of the mind , is attended with the subsidence of our woes ; but the agitated thoughts in the mind , are causes of all our woes .


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

|| VERSE 10 | RESTLESSNESS OF THE MIND & ITS CURE ||

The monster of the mind , being roused from its rest , raises all dangers and disasters ; but its falling into rest and inaction , causes happiness and perfect felicity .


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

|| VERSE 12 | RESTLESSNESS OF THE MIND & ITS CURE ||

Destroy the internal desires of your mind , which are raised by ignorance alone ; and attain supreme felicity by resignation to the Divine Will .


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

|| VERSE 04 | DESCRIPTION OF IGNORANCE & DELUSION ||

There exists nothing real or unreal anywhere , except the only true essence of GOD ; as there is no substantiality in the continuity of the waves , besides the body of waters .


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

|| VERSE 33 | DESCRIPTION OF IGNORANCE & DELUSION ||

The delusion consists in the building of aerial castles in the mind , without their substance ; and though these appear in hundreds and thousands of shapes , they have no substantiality in them .


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

|| VERSE 43-44 | DESCRIPTION OF IGNORANCE & DELUSION ||

There is the same delusion here on Earth as in the appearance of couple moons in the sky , and in the vision of things in a dream , as also in the motion of immovable things on the land to the passenger in a boat .

Humans being long deluded by this error , which has fastly laid hold of their minds , imagine a long duration of the world , as they do of the scenes in their dreams .
