Yoga Is The Suppression Of The Modifications Of The Mind
This is the definition of Yoga – stoppage of the Citta. Yoga suggests that it has to be stopped. Can we imagine life without mental activity, thoughts, feelings? Mind is the best instrument to function in life. Yoga says – complete stoppage of the mind. Mind is made up of three Gunas, which can never be steady. They are changeful and we remain at their mercy. We can’t switch off and say, ‘NO’ to the mind. We can’t manage the mind – it is too clever.
Don’t see that which causes a lot of thinking. Mind is made to think, so it goes on doing it’s work all the time. Once the person is aware, thought processes can be controlled. If we are aware, we take a decision. We can learn to stop the mind, at least when we are negative. Can we take this decision?
