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

|| VERSE 7 | MEDITATION OF THE SUBJECTIVE & OBJECTIVE ||

As the one moon appears as two to the dimsighted eye , so the intellect , vitiated by influence of the senses , sees a duality in the unity of the Supreme Spirit .


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

|| VERSE 10 | MEDITATION OF THE SUBJECTIVE & OBJECTIVE ||

When the intellect thinks of another thing ( as matter ) beside itself , it then falls into the error of dualism ; but when it concentrates its thoughts in itself , it then loses the sense of the objective duality .


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

|| VERSE 14 | MEDITATION OF THE SUBJECTIVE & OBJECTIVE ||

When the sound and consummate understanding , runs in one course towards its main reservoir of the Supreme .

It becomes divested of its knowledge of the knowables , and of its self-consciousness also , in the presence of the One and no other .


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

|| VERSE 16 | MEDITATION OF THE SUBJECTIVE & OBJECTIVE ||

The mind being repressed from its natural flight , can have no thought of any thing ; and is lost in itself ; as the natural heat of fire and motion of the wind being extinct , they are annihilated of themselves .


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

|| VERSE 2 | LECTURE ON TRUTH ||

Know BRAHMAN is Omnipresent , and the Lord of all at all times ; IT manifests Itself in whatever attribute IT assumes to Itself at Its free will . Exarbitrio suo .


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

|| VERSE 13 | LECTURE ON TRUTH ||

As the same gold is changed to the forms of bracelets and other things , and as the same gross matter appears in the different forms of wood and stone .

So the uniform Soul of GOD appears as multiform according to Its various modes and attributes .


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

|| VERSE 15 | LECTURE ON TRUTH ||

The varying intellect erroneously conceives its unreal egoism and meitatem as realities , from its ignorance of its unity with the unchangeable Reality of GOD , and also from its felicity of enjoyments peculiar to its varied state .


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

|| VERSE 77-78 | LECTURE ON TRUTH ||

BRAHMAN is pure , all pervading , infinite and absolute . It is for our misery only , that we take IT for the impure matter and unreal substance ; and as the definite and limited pluralities .

It is the vitiated imagination of children , that fancies the water and its waves as different things ; and makes a false distinction between them which are really the same things .


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

|| VERSE 79 | LECTURE ON TRUTH ||

It is the undivided self of BRAHMAN which expanded Itself in visible nature , and which appears as a duality , like that of the waves and the sea , and the bracelets and gold .

Thus IT of Itself appears as other than Itself .
