  • How to Understand the Mind

    Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha

Swamiji speaks about Sapta Bhumikas-the seven spiritual states of a seeker. It is not a physical growth, but a psycho-Intellectual growth of the seeker.

Both the mind and intelligence are expressions of the Consciousness. The consciousness employs the senses and employing the senses, it perceives. The actual perception is in the mind, registration is in the mind, imprints are in the mind, the mind uses the senses to have its own imprint and these imprints are stored. So, though it is a sensory experience, and we call it direct, the experience itself is in the level of consciousness.

After the mental imprints are made, mental role stops, and the intellectual role starts. The intelligence uses the mental data to think, to reason. As are the senses and sensory objects for the mind, so are the mental data, mental objects for the intelligence. But what functions as the intelligence is again consciousness. So, both the mental data and the intellectual finding data, are direct experiences.

Shlokas chanted in the Track:

बुद्धिग्राह्यमतीन्द्रियम् ।

यं लब्ध्वा चापरं लाभं मन्यते नाधिकं ततः ।
यस्मिन्स्थितो न दुःखेन गुरुणापि विचाल्यते ।।
