Yoga And Healing The Mind

The mind is like mercury and slips like an eel; it's very difficult to control the mind. Yet it is possible to bring the mind, stability and quietness. Cosmic intelligence in each individual develops individual consciousness known as chitta. This chitta has three parts, ahankara or ego, buddhi or intelligence and manas or the mind; they are all ingrained in the consciousness. The absolute consciousness has no shape. The soul has no shape; both are nirankara.

When ahankara is broken into two parts, it becomes aham akara, (aham means I, akara means shape). The chitta is placed in such a way that on one side, is the pride of the individual and on the other side, is the divinity of the individual. The manas or mind and human body has got five bhootas or elements: earth, water, fire, air and ether. (MORE)
