Mind, Vasanas and Gas Cylinder
« on: September 22, 2009, 11:01:16 AM »
Nochur Venkataraman says:  Mind is like a gas cylinder.  The
Vasanas are like the liquid petroleum gas inside.  The gas comes
out when we put on the cyclinder and it burns in the oven.  We can
temporarily put off the gas cylinder.  But gas is still there in
cylinder.  Mind still contains Vasanas, though made still temporarily.  When the gas is completely exhausted, there is only
empty cylinder. Even if you put it on, you cannot burn in the oven.
When Vasanas are thus exhausted, the mind becomes empty.
Since there are no Vasnas inside, it is like a burnt rope, only
form and no use.
