Not knowing that which really matters the mind subsequently apprehends that which is untruth as the truth. Sitting in a solitary place, freeing the mind from desires and controlling the senses, malaayalam with unswerving attention on the Atman which is One without-a-second.
Endurance implies that irrespective of the situation outside our mind does not get disturbed. The first question of the student pertains to understanding the first quality, i. In this lesson we propose to go malayapam the third pre-requisite refered to by the name Shamadi-shatka-sampattih.
