Yoga to the people Step 19:-
That mind is not self-illuminating, as it is the object of knowledge and perception by the pure consciousness.
When the consciousness operates through the mind, it is also witness of the mind.
When consciousness is witnessing the mind, the mind is the object being witnessed. At some point, the mind itself is seen as an object of observation to be set aside with non-attachment, just like the many surface level thought patterns of daily life are set aside in the earlier or grosser stages of meditation. Now, the instrument of thinking itself is being seen and transcended in the pursuit of the direct experience of pure consciousness.
True knowledge of self-mind by mind
is perceived only by the inner luminosity of self-conscious that is outer part
of soul particle. The mind of a living being is not a spectator or a
witness because it is itself a sight and a scene. Like thing or object in outer
subtle or matter world that mind see, smell, taste, touch, hear, the mind
is one pure particles cosmic instruments, which itself is
not a spectator and visionary. Whatever the mind truth sees or observes,
it is with the illumination of the soulís consciousness. The mind believes and
experiences the untrue knowledge and thoughts that it attains through the five
senses. In reality the shadow of the subject or object gives grasp to the
soulís consciousness. The real perceiver is the soulís consciousness and not
the mind of the human being.
The Yoga to the people says that the mind
itself does not have consciousness of the soulís illumination. This is
because it is merely a cosmic instrument for attaining consciousness of
consciousness or lack of consciousness of pure particles by a
living being. It is a product of pure particles. The knowledge about
mind like the knowledge about an object can also be attained. This is
because like the consciousness of the soul, the mind does not attain
knowledge about itself. The soulís consciousness is capable of glowing
knowledge about different subjects or objects and knowledge about the mind
itself at the same time.
The mind, however, is not capable of
attaining consciousness or thoughts about a subject or an object and
knowledge or thoughts about itself at the same time. This is because the
mind is a subtlest cosmic instrument of nature particle for the
attainment of consciousness of consciousness and thought of matter world
that is in opposite directions. It does not have the power to attain
consciousness about its. The mind, which is a cosmic instrument for the attainment
of the consciousness, can attain consciousness only with the help of
soulís consciousness. Without self-consciousness, the mind itself is
a meaningless object. The mind is like the moon that works with glow of sun and
the soulís consciousness is like the sun that works with its own glow.
The moon sees, perceives and reflects the
light of the sun. On the other hand, the sun sees, perceives and reflects its
own light. The moon also sees but itís seeing is like that of an instrument.
The seeing and perceiving of the sun is the seeing and perception of its self.
As such, the mind sees and perceives the pure particles subjects and
objects with the light of the soulís consciousness. It cannot see and perceive
the pure particles subjects and objects with its light. The soulís
consciousness sees and perceives the mind and vision and perceives it self
simultaneously. It also sees and perceives the innumerable subjects and objects
through the mind. During seeded Samadhi the mind is to be made free of
thoughts and the thoughts are to be made empty and free of their cravings. The
thoughts are to be restrained and nullified.
It is with the help of soulís
consciousness that consciousness about the emptied mind and knowledge and
thought of the thought free mind, is to be gained. During seeded Samadhi
the mind itself is to be made static and stable in the soulís
consciousness. Thereafter, both knowledge of the soulís consciousness and
knowledge of the soul are to be attained. During seeded Samadhi,
knowledge about lack of consciousness which grips the soulís
consciousness in the mind itself and knowledge about self-sense is
also to be attained.
The Yoga to the people says that when a human being
attains consciousness or lack of consciousness about a subject or an
object through the five senses, he believes that the senses are attaining this
knowledge . When he sees and perceives with the eyes and tastes with the tongue
and smells with the nose and hears with the ears and touches with the body, he
believes that his eyes, tongue, nose, ears and body are attaining knowledge
about a subject or an object. This is a great delusion. This is false thought.
This is because the senses do not have any self-illuminating radiance. The
senses like the subject or the object are cosmic instruments of mind
of pure particles. These senses convey a shadow of the sight of the
form of the subject or object in the mind fields of the living being.
Thereafter, the mind reflects the
sight of the form of the subject or object for the comprehension of
consciousness of human being. The five senses of knowledge namely eyes, ears,
nose, tongue and body are believed to be the perceiver and viewer. For a
scientist, it is the mind, which sees and perceives the senses of knowledge. The
mind itself to which the five senses convey the sight or scene of a subject or
object, is also the perceiver and viewer of the soul. Such a consciousness
is realized and experienced and not believed by ordinary human being. But for a
perfected perfect disciple of seeded Samadhi, the mind like the senses
is also a cosmic instrument of pure particles. It keeps on conveying
the feeling of the presence of the subject or object to the consciousness of the
soul. The form of the subject and object and then sight are conveyed through the
five kinds of thoughts of the mind.
As such, similar kinds of human beings with
similar kinds of senses harbors and entertain dissimilar kinds of thoughts in
their similar kinds of mind for a similar kind of object. They become aware of
different kinds of sights about the same object according to the craving of
their thoughts. On the other hand, the perfected sage of seeded Samadhi
realizes the soulís consciousness as the viewer and the perceiver instead of
regarding the subtlest Nature particle five senses and its mind as the
perceiver and the viewer. The viewer is experienced as the consciousness of the
soul by the sage. He feels awareness about this aspect.
A perfect disciple who repeatedly practices
the restraint and nullification of the thoughts of mind and cravings contained
in these thoughts, also practices consciously to attain consciousness
about the empty mind. It is by attaining consciousness about the
mind that the perfect disciple eliminates the mindís lack of consciousness and the self-sense. Both lack of
self-sense of self-ego are the causes for the cycle of life and death. It is by
attaining consciousness of the mind and by making the consciousness of the
soul in the mind as a subject of knowledge that the perfect disciple gains and
realizes self-conscious consciousness of the soul particle.
