Discussion-3. " It is the desire ........"
It is the desire, as we have seen, that generates the flow of thoughts in the mind, and it is again the quality, texture, quantity and direction in which the thoughts flow, that determine the actions.
Thus, the 'Karmam', cannot be where desires have ended.
Thoughts cannot end where desires have not ceased.
Where thoughts are bubbling, there the mind must be gross with its dense power.
Therefore, "mano-nasam" ---- "annihiation of the mind," is possible only when "desires are annihilated."
