YOGA VASISHTHA | MITRA | VOL 2.2 | BOOK IV | CHAP IV
|| VERSE 06-09 | TREATING OF THE GERM OF EXISTENCE ||
The minds of people are ever troubled , with their thoughts of the world and bodily actions ; but these being deadened and defunct , neither the body nor the outer world are seen .
The negation of the outer world , and the suppression of the inner thoughts , serve to curb the demon of the mind , by practice of self-abnegation for a long period of time .
It is possible to heal the inward disease of the internal mind , by administration of this best and only medicine of negation of the external world .
It is because of its thoughts , that the mind is subjected to the errors of its birth and death ; and to those of its being bound to or liberated from the bonds of the body and the world .
