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

One that afflicts oneself by one's own desires , and then flies to this way and that , signifies one's fool-heartedness to hunt after everything , and be a runaway from one's Self .


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

|| VERSE 38 | HISTORY OF THE HEART CONTINUED ||

All these ceaseless woes are the making of one's own mind , which being worried at last by its incessant anxieties , strives to retire from them , to find its final repose in Yoga < : " union with " GOD : > .


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

|| VERSE 42 | HISTORY OF THE HEART CONTINUED ||

No flight can release the mind , unless it is practised to resignation , restrained from its other pursuits , and constrained to the continued practice of pious meditation , which can only relieve its sorrows .


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

|| VERSE 10 | ON THE INDIVISIBILITY & IMMORTALITY OF THE SOUL ||

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

|| VERSE 03-04 | DESCRIPTION OF MIND ||

The mental powers are ever busy to multiply the unrealities to infinity , as ignorant children are prone to create the false goblins of their fancy , only for their terror and trouble .

But reality soon disperses the troublesome unrealities , and the unsullied understanding drives off the errors of imagination , as the sunshine dispels the darkness .


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

The disease of desire is the delusion of the mind ; therefore it is to be rooted out at once with all diligence from the mind .


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

|| VERSE 28 | DESCRIPTION OF MIND ||

The mind is restless of its own nature , with all its vain thoughts and desires within itself ; one is carried abroad as by its current ; over hills and deserts and across rivers and seas , to far and remote cities and countries ( in search of gain ) .
