      Cleaning the Mental Lake

      "On the surface of the mental lake there are waves,
      your normal thought forms. Below the thought forms,
      you have the subconscious mind, which has its own
      color and dirt. And, at the very bottom of the water,
      you have the old sediment, which you call the
      samskaras, or the vasanas, which you have brought
      from several incarnations. The Yoga practices help
      to still the waves of the water and make it crystal
      clear so that you can get a clear vision of the Self:
      Tada drastuh svarupe avasthanam (Yoga Sutras, 1.3).
      If the mental lake is made still and clean, then you
      can see the Self, or the Atman, because there's
      nothing to color it, there's nothing to distort the
      vision, and you understand what it is—it shines in
      its own real glory.

      "God bless you. OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti."
