YOGA VASISHTHA | MITRA | VOL 2.2 | BOOK IV | CHAP I

|| VERSE 35 | JANYA-JANI-NIRUPANA ||

Those who assign a certain cause to some effect or event , betray their ignorance of the true cause ; for what is it that produces the effect , except the very thing by some of its accessory powers .


YOGA VASISHTHA | MITRA | VOL 2.2 | BOOK IV | CHAP I

|| VERSE 36 | JANYA-JANI-NIRUPANA ||

Throw off at a distance , the doctrine of cause and effect invented by the ignorant ; and know that to be True , which is without beginning and end , and the same appearing as the world .


YOGA VASISHTHA | MITRA | VOL 2.2 | BOOK IV | CHAP II

|| VERSE 08 | THE RECEPTACLE OF THE MUNDANE EGG ||

There neither is or was or ever will be a separate world in existence . It is the one intelligence of The Divinity , that displays the creation in Itself .


YOGA VASISHTHA | MITRA | VOL 2.2 | BOOK IV | CHAP II

|| VERSE 13 | THE RECEPTACLE OF THE MUNDANE EGG ||

It is certain that the appearance of the visible world , is no more than our inward conception of it , in the vacuity of the intellect ; and the knowledge of " I " , " you " and " other " , are false impressions on our minds like figures in paintings .


YOGA VASISHTHA | MITRA | VOL 2.2 | BOOK IV | CHAP II

|| VERSE 14 | THE RECEPTACLE OF THE MUNDANE EGG ||

As these mountains and hills , these lands and seas and these revolutions of days and nights , and months and years , and the knowledge that this is a particular age , and this is a minute and moment , and this is life and this is death , are all mere conceptions of the mind .


YOGA VASISHTHA | MITRA | VOL 2.2 | BOOK IV | CHAP II

|| VERSE 15 | THE RECEPTACLE OF THE MUNDANE EGG ||

So is the knowledge of the duration and termination of millenniums etc , and that of the creation and its beginning and end , mere misconceptions of our minds .


YOGA VASISHTHA | MITRA | VOL 2.2 | BOOK IV | CHAP II

|| VERSE 18 | THE RECEPTACLE OF THE MUNDANE EGG ||

The Universe continues and displays Itself as serenely in the Divine Mind , as it did throughout all Eternity ; and It shines with particles of the Light of that Intellect , as the firmament is as full with the radiance of solar light .


YOGA VASISHTHA | MITRA | VOL 2.2 | BOOK IV | CHAP II

|| VERSE 25 | THE RECEPTACLE OF THE MUNDANE EGG ||

Purify your mind from the dross of false representations, and rise from the bed of your doubts and desires ; drive away your protracted sleep of ignorance , and be freed from the fears of death and disease


YOGA VASISHTHA | MITRA | VOL 2.2 | BOOK IV | CHAP III

|| VERSE 13 | ETERNITY OF THE WORLD ||

The atoms ( of matter ) which fill the world , have other incipient atoms ( of Spirit ) , which are inherent in them , and cause them to take and appear in the forms of mountains and the like .


YOGA VASISHTHA | MITRA | VOL 2.2 | BOOK IV | CHAP III

|| VERSE 23 | ETERNITY OF THE WORLD ||

To understand the creation as something different from BRAHMAN , leads one apart from It ; but to take it as synonymous with BRAHMAN , leads one to felicity .
