How to control the vagaries of the mind?
Swamiji talks of how the five fold fluctuations of the mind is caused by valid knowledge, erroneous knowledge, fanciful ideas, sleep and memory. One can change the mental state through valid knowledge and the basis of valid knowledge is Pratyaksha, Anuman, agamah paramanni namely Direct perception, Inference, verbal or scriptural testimony. These are the three means of valid knowledge with which one can change your mind in a positive direction.
Consciousness devoid of valid knowledge leads to flawed perception and that is the root cause of misery. Erroneous knowledge is leads to misconception. First fallacy is to believe that I am the body not the soul.
