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

|| VERSE 27 | PROOF OF THE FUTILITY OF MIND ||

The same error taking possession of many minds all at once , proves the futility of common sense and universal belief being taken for certainty , hence the common belief of the reality of things , is the effect of universal delusion and error .


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

|| VERSE 28 | PROOF OF THE FUTILITY OF MIND ||

As the same sentiments and figures of speech , occur in different poets of distant ages and countries , so it is not striking that the same thoughts and ideas should rise simultaneously in the minds of different people also .


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

|| VERSE 29 | PROOF OF THE FUTILITY OF MIND ||

In common experience , we find the notions and ideas to stand for the things themselves , otherwise nothing is known to exist at all without our notion or idea of it in the mind .


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

|| VERSE 30 | PROOF OF THE FUTILITY OF MIND ||

One idea embraces many others also under it , as those of the waves and current , are contained under that of water .

And so one thought is associated by others relating its past , present and future conditions of being ; as the thought of a seed accompanies the thoughts of its past and future states and its fruits and flowers of the tree .


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

|| VERSE 31 | PROOF OF THE FUTILITY OF MIND ||

Nothing has its entity or non-entity , nor can anything be said to exist or not to be , unless we have a positive idea of the existent , and a negative notion of the inexistent .


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

|| VERSE 32 | PROOF OF THE FUTILITY OF MIND ||

All that we see in our error , is as inexistent as oiliness in sands ; and so the bracelet is nothing in reality , but a formal appearance of the substance of gold .


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

|| VERSE 33 | PROOF OF THE FUTILITY OF MIND ||

A fallacy can have no connection with the reality , as the fallacy of the world with the Reality of GOD , and so the fallacy of the ring with the substance of gold and of the serpent with the rope .


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

|| VERSE 44 | PROOF OF THE FUTILITY OF MIND ||

Spiritually considered , all things are alike , because they are full with the same Spirit ; otherwise the error of distinction between the viewer and the view creates endless differences


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

|| VERSE 46 | PROOF OF THE FUTILITY OF MIND ||

Know , you who seek Truth , all things to be identic with the entity of GOD . Renounce your knowledge of nonentities and the various kinds of errors and fallacies and know the One as All


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

|| VERSE 53 | PROOF OF THE FUTILITY OF MIND ||

Between the sight and its object lies the eye of the beholder , which is beyond the sight of its viewer , and is neither the view nor the viewer .
