In fact, the mind should, at the time, be conscious only ofPatanjali, 247:seed of meditation, and the thoughts which the mind is formulating in connection with that object.Patanjali, 248:mental conditions; they exist within his mind. This condition is followed by one in which hisPatanjali, 248:dhyana, of concentration and of meditation, the mind is the important factor and is the producer inPatanjali, 249:for words and phrases are but the effort of the mind to submit to the brain of the personal selfPatanjali, 249:all the emotional reactions of the desire-mind (kama-manas) vehicle are subdued and the yogi isPatanjali, 249:alert, positive and awake, for the brain and the mind are held by him in a steady grip, and arePatanjali, 249:function with full use of the brain, sheaths and mind of the lower self, his vehicle or instrument.Patanjali, 249:the object of his meditation.

This thread passes through the mind and illumines it. The thoughts engendered inPatanjali, 253:in the automatic response of the chitta (or mind stuff) to the knowledge conveyed, are thenPatanjali, 254:4. The illumining of the intellect. Unless the mind or intellect can grasp and transmit that whichPatanjali, 255:Raja Yoga or the [255] science of union through mind control and development.

In all the previous stages the thinkerPatanjali, 258:of the objects seen and the control of the mind as the real man seeks to focus the illuminating rayPatanjali, 258:man seeks to focus the illuminating ray of his mind upon them. In studying these results ofPatanjali, 258:in the psychic realm, it should be borne in mind that the eight means of yoga do produce definitePatanjali, 258:and the turning of the eye of the soul, via the mind and the third eye, upon these planes. ThePatanjali, 258:The sequence of mental states is as follows: the mind reacts to that which is seen; then followsPatanjali, 258:that which is seen; then follows the moment of mind control. Then ensues a moment wherein thePatanjali, 258:Then ensues a moment wherein the chitta (mind stuff) responds to both these factors. Finally thesePatanjali, 259:of control. First there is the overcoming of the mind-impress of excitation. Then comes thePatanjali, 259:excitation. Then comes the manifestation of the mind-impress of control. Then the perceivingPatanjali, 259:of his meditation. This excites or impresses his mind, and throws into activity the "modificationsPatanjali, 259:principle," or stimulates the tendency of the mind to create thought-forms, and throws the chittaPatanjali, 259:create thought-forms, and throws the chitta or mind stuff into shapes corresponding to the objectPatanjali, 259:action of the will and steadies and controls the mind stuff so that it ceases to modify itself andPatanjali, 259:"If there is a modification which impels the mind to rush out through the senses and the yogi triesPatanjali, 259:modification." The impress of the will upon the mind will naturally lead to the mind assuming thePatanjali, 259:will upon the mind will naturally lead to the mind assuming the shape that controls it and it willPatanjali, 259:the thinker on his own plane, and because the mind is controlled and the [261] object seen excitesPatanjali, 261:lies in the fact that the instrument, the mind, is now in a state of control, it is thereforePatanjali, 261:thinker to impress the brain, via the controlled mind, with that which is perceived. Man on thePatanjali, 261:vision and of illumination and all has gone. The mind begins again to modify itself and is thrownPatanjali, 261:10. Through the cultivation of this habit of mind there will eventuate a steadiness of spiritualPatanjali, 261:The point of balance between excitation of the mind and control can be achieved with greaterPatanjali, 261:repetition, until the habit of stabilizing the mind is acquired. When this is accomplished twoPatanjali, 262:things occur: [262] An instantaneous control of mind at will, producing A still mind, free fromPatanjali, 262:control of mind at will, producing A still mind, free from thought forms, A quiescent responsivePatanjali, 262:between the soul and the physical plane man. The mind and brain are completely subdued by the soul.Patanjali, 262:be remembered here that this condition of the mind and brain is a positive one, not a negativePatanjali, 262:of this habit, and the restraining of the mind from its thought-form-making tendency, resultsPatanjali, 263:Book 3 - Union achieved and its Results 12. When mind control and the controlling factor arePatanjali, 263:concentration, all give some idea of the mind condition under consideration. The aspirant is nowPatanjali, 263:is now deliberately unconscious of all states of mind relating to the three worlds. His attentionPatanjali, 264:is revealed by the illuminating light of the mind being steadily directed upon that object. ThePatanjali, 264:known and realized. It should here be borne in mind that every form of divine manifestation hasPatanjali, 271:essence (or idea) are usually confused in the mind of the perceiver. By concentrated meditation onPatanjali, 271:in connection with this sutra must be borne in mind if clarity of thought is to be achieved: [272]Patanjali, 272:9. Second Aspect. 9. Third Aspect. In the mind of man these three aspects are confused and thatPatanjali, 275:and only those mentally polarized and with the mind under control can regain this knowledge if theyPatanjali, 275:power to see thought-images only comes through mind control, and the mind can only be controlled byPatanjali, 275:only comes through mind control, and the mind can only be controlled by the real or spiritual man.Patanjali, 277:and on the astral.

It is the inherentPatanjali, 280:subjective happening. All that is exists in the mind of the thinker, not in the sense that isPatanjali, 280:idea and those forms persist as long as the mind of the thinker is on them and disappear when hePatanjali, 280:is on them and disappear when he "takes his mind off" them. It is the nature of the thought forcePatanjali, 283:latter will be seen, and that no action of the mind of the person looked at can inhibit thePatanjali, 284:possible when the thinker on his own plane, the mind, and the brain, are all aligned andPatanjali, 288:that dispassion brings in the quality of lower mind, tenderness is the emotional result ofPatanjali, 289:into subtler realms.

When these seven points are borne in mind, it is interesting to note that the symbol ofPatanjali, 291:(Ganganatha Jha), The inner Light (Dvivedi), The mind, full of Light (Dvivedi), The radiance in thePatanjali, 293:nature and the senses unfold prior to the mind, as can be seen if we study humanity as a whole.

Vyasa notes that the mind world is peopled by six groups of Gods (the sixPatanjali, 299:is apparently inferred).
