Panchadasi - (133)
« on: August 26, 2008, 03:56:49 PM »
The Chapter XI continues....

Verse 116:-  "Mind has been described as of two types, pure
and impure. The impure is that which is tainted by desires,
the pure that which is free from desires."

(See also Maitrayani  Up.6.3.6;  Brahma or Amrtabindu Up. 1;)

Bhagavan Sri Ramana says that there are no two minds.  There
is only one mind.  But only 'vasanas' or latent tendencies are two,
pure and impure.  To say that the mind is of two types, is only
to say that there are pure and impure vasanans.

Verse 117:- " The mind alone is the cause of bondage and
release.  Attachment to objects leads to bondage and freedom
from attachment leads to release."

(See Miatrayani Up. 6.3.11;  Brahma or Amrtabindu Up.2)

Verse 118:-  "The bliss arising from absorption in the contemplation
of the Self, when all sins and taints are washed off through the
practice of Samadhi, cannot be described in words. One must
feel it in one's own heart."

(See Maitrayani Up. 6.3.8;)
