वैदर्भा उवाच​
अभ्यासकाले भगवन् वृत्तिरन्तर्बहिस्तथा
यातायातं प्रकुर्वाणा याते किं ज्ञानमुच्चते (7 - 4)

Bhagavan, during practice the mind goes and comes, in and out. Is the in-going of the mind called jnana

अन्तर्याता मतिर्विद्वन्बहिरायाति चेत्पुनः ।
अभ्यासमेव तामाहुर्ज्ञानं ह्यनुभवोऽच्युतः ॥ (7 - 5)

Oh learned one, if the mind having once gone in comes out again, it is only practice. For Jnana is the experience which never slips away

Salutations to Sri Ramana

How to make the mind which goes in and comes out? This is by
rubbing the mind (the Ruby) with mind (the polishing stone).
It is a paradox.  Mind only asks the question:  Is it for me?  No,
I am not the mind.  Then, who am I?  This constant rubbing of the
mind with the mind, the mind becomes the Ruby and shines within,
as the Self.  The mind is extinct and the Self alone is there. 
(Sri Arunachala Stuti Panchakam.)

Arunachala Siva.

Just as a dirty cloth becomes purer and purer as it is beaten and squeezed more and more so also every unselfish activity of his, serves the purpose of dealing a blow upon his ‘mine-ness’ and thereby makes his mind purer and purer. If we minutely scrutinise every injunction and prohibition such as fasting, charitable deeds and other codes of conduct as enjoined by the Vedas, to be followed by people in their daily actions (Nitya-Karma anushtana), it will become clear that all these aim at making one to sacrifice at least a bit of ‘mine-ness’ and put a check on one’s craving for the worldly enjoyments. -- Sri Sadhu Om
