Mantram-9.


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."
