Controlling the Activities Of The Mind
Morning lecture from summer seminar in Strilky Ashram.
All the mental activities of the mind are called vrittis.There are different categories of vrittis. They may be either painful or non-painful, called klishta or aklishta, disturbances of the mind or a peaceful state of the mind. Klisthas depends also on the society which whom we spend our time. Talking increases or decreases our mental activity. A spoken word will multiply and the brain will start with arguments, comments and so on. All our klishtas can be purified with mantra and meditation, but a meditation without mantra has no effect on the path of spirituality.
