How to deal with mind?

Posted on: 17/01/2022

Is there Vrutti in the state of meditation?

For Scholars Posted on: 16/01/2022

[A question by Shri G. Lakshman]

Swami Replied:- Vrutti means thought or mental impression or a pulse of awareness. If meditation is in deep sleep state, then there is no Vrutti. Except the state of deep sleep, Vrutti exists always. In waken state and dream state Vrutti exists. If Vrutti does not exist, it is certainly the state of deep sleep only. If you give meditation as an alternative name for the state of deep sleep, we can say that Vrutti...

Posted on: 16/01/2022

Posted on: 16/01/2022

[A question by Shri Phani]

Swami Replied:- Death is said by Him as inevitable to anybody after taking birth on this Earth (aparihārye'rthe, na tvaṃ śocitu marhasi). The soul is born to die and the soul dies to take birth again. The life of the soul after birth is only the process of walking towards the goal that is death.
