Listen to the audio:
Dr. Jayadeva Yogendra:
Smt. Hansaji J. Yogendra:
“As I said last time, these sutras that come now are not for us actually. We householders are supposed to use our mind when doing any action. Here we are talking about stopping the mind – Nirvicara. The outcome of Nirvicara is Adhyatmaprasad, i.e. the most blissful state, a state where the mind is absolutely soft, pure, unaffected by anything, no thoughts at all. Mind is there, but no thinking. Here it is done with effort. When we talk about the mind, it is the conscious, subconscious, our entire personality. Earlier sutras were also telling us that our Karmas have to be handled. So according to past Karmas also, whatever thoughts were coming are also not coming now. This is a beautiful state, totally blank. You experience in depth. The earlier state was where you put your mind to one thing and remain steady. These are all types of Samadhi. So earlier it was with mind and now, mind is no more.”
