Today, April 27, 2010. My name is Vadim Zaporozhtsev, we are in the Cultural Center of the "Enlightenment", in Moscow, close to m.Novoslobodskaya. This lecture for Yoga Open University. All information is stored on the websites: www.openyoga.ru, www.happyoga.narod.ru, www.yogacenter.ru.
Today we continue our look at yoga visualization and move on. I remind you of our previous case, we have begun to consider as an illustration of the action of yoga Visualization. We hypothesized that a yogi sitting in the outdoor summer cafe on Tverskaya Street in Moscow and sipping a delicious tea.
Accordingly, we'll have this beautiful yoga. We have a steaming cup of delicious tea. And, accordingly, the process, as our this nice yogi uses his senses in order to realize the process that arises. His eyes see the mug, his nose inhales the fragrance of tea, his arm, respectively, feels the cup. His ears, say, hear the ringing of a spoon, with which he stirs sugar in the tea. Those. It involves all five senses. And these five senses gather information about what is happening and send this information to what the West would call "mind yoga."
Let me remind you that this intelligence from the perspective of a certain axiomatic reason device consists of three parts. This so-called Manas, which filters, passes or does not pass the flow of information from the senses through. And if Manas transmits these streams, they fall into a different section of the mind, which is called "buddhi". And buddhi substance creates an exact copy of what he sees, hears, smells or touches our yogi.
So, this our favorite yoga, sitting in outdoor cafe on Tverskaya street, sipping tea, of course, generated image or replica of a cup of tea. But it is made of buddhi substance. Those. you realize that this circle is made, for example, made of clay. tea-based - it is water. Also there is welding. And all this is created from some of the atoms, molecules, our gross material world.
But our senses, anyway, perceive information from a cup of tea flows transmitted to the buddhi, which is the same copy, but not out of the ordinary atoms or molecules, and even from this the thinnest substance buddhi, which can instantly take this image, for example, tea cup, with all the relevant properties of the material from which is made a mug or tea itself.
And all this happens in the buddhi, provided that the Manas missed the information about this cup of tea. Let me remind you also that there is a third part of our mind, or the third reason, which is committed to highlights. Just as the flashlight illuminates something in the dark, also the third intelligence department displays all replicas, which are reproduced in the buddhi. And the third part is called "citta".
Those. citta - is a mechanism through which the light of consciousness the rays emanating from our higher self, or emanating from the higher self of the yogi, who sits on the street Tverskaya and sipping his tea.
Thus, it turns out that the higher self yogi knows or does not know about going on some events only under the condition that, at first, rough senses seen this or that phenomenon. For example, rough eyes seen a cup of tea. Then, the so-called subtle sense organs or those principles, which are responsible for the very principled opportunity to see something, start working on the device yogi body. And thus begin to pass through a information in mind.
The mind can also immediately perceive this information, or reject it, or to put in a certain place. And it is engaged in Manas. Manas from the variety of information flow, the perceived yogi, selects only the information that he considers the most important and relevant. And if Manas considers important and relevant this information, it passes it through itself in the buddhi. The buddhi on the basis of this information is an exact copy of the object that has been grasped by the senses rough. Finally, if the citta it highlights, then our I comprehend this subject.
This is a chain, given by me in a somewhat simplified form (as you know), explains the process of knowledge we have of the world and the whole of what is happening with our perception of some, may be objects or events in our lives.
Similarly, the same way there is the knowledge of any other cases or events that occur in our lives. Those. we perceive everything that happens to us through a replica of which is formed respectively in the buddhi, and which comprehends Chitta.
As you know, our beautiful yogi who drink tea, can obtain a wealth of information. For example, let's say, on Tverskaya street car rides. Of course, the eyes, ears yogi also fix the object and also the vehicle information flows reach this border Manas, or to get into the buddhi, or do not get.
If this information gets immediately, the yogi (as it were) drew attention to this car. If the yogi tea pitiem completely absorbed, and, say, a passing car takes in the background, then, of course, this information does not fall directly into the buddhi. Accordingly, it does not appear immediately light chitta, and falls into an intermediate repository in which this information is waiting for a better time to show offworld cheats or our consciousness.
Those. There is a kind of buffer I abstractly draw it next, as a kind of box. A buffer memory, which is actually going to all the information, which somehow went through our five gross senses, but do not hit immediately in the buddhi. More precisely, it was not immediately highlighted in the buddhi. This issue is quite clear: it fell into the buddhi or not.
Unfortunately, it is quite complicated and difficult yoga section. And the focus is now on it we can not, after all, this is a different section of yoga. But, one way or another, everything that does not fall into the direct light of the chitta or direct ray of consciousness coming from the citta, the language of modern psychology, gets into our subconscious.
Here we can make at least some bundle with the general term is now accepted as the "subconscious" as used in science, psychology. I just want more time to make a reservation, that yoga is not a substitute for science. Therefore, there is always a question of terminology, as appropriate or inappropriate or that the interpretation of, say, yoga or science.
But I would still like some parallel need to throw at least, that we, modern people understand that whatever it is that modern psychologists, has been known for many thousands of years (probably) before the term "psychology" itself arose.
So, all that Manas is filtered, stored in the memory buffer. In the future, people do not care one way or another will have to accept this information. Very often, the perception of this information is just the background in the form of some vague feelings, experiences, or, say, at the time of dreaming, when a particular event is the last day naveivaet certain dreams.
Just during these dreams and dopererabatyvaetsya all the information that was immediately rejected by Manas. But, at the same time, Manas believes that it is necessary to have at least some idea about this information. Why? Because it also plays a significant role in human life because It may be required in future decision-making.
Example with restaurant
Say you find yourself in any restaurant. And like all good, but some information says that this is not the place where you spend time. Something you do not like in terms of persons sitting at the next table, the music you do not really liking.
But you say, came from a woman, and their focus is on the girl. And then, having left his own restaurant, you vaguely begin to think that sitting around the criminal authorities, but music was sincere chanson. In general, it was not a restaurant, and slot where the mafia going, and you went there by chance. And you'd better not show up there.
It is understood that the next time, going to the door of this restaurant, you are, of course, on the one hand, you remember all the events that have been with your girlfriend, but you still have a taste or any images that are out of the shadow of volume act . And they naveivaet your reaction. Let's say you did not like it.
The same may be the opposite, that if you happen to another restaurant went where they were very polite waiters are very friendly and open people, without a touch of something so dark, that you and remains the overall impression of a place that you visited, as a place where you want to go again. And they tell you about many little things that you do not directly have been apprehended at the time of the visit, but which left some background information. This information, in one way or another, got into your subconscious and present him to the decision-making process. Or the direct effect of what we might call "the subconscious."
The process of working chitta
But we go back to our example. So, if the passing vehicle passed through Manas, then, respectively, in the buddhi formed an exact copy of a passing car, and your Chitta displays the copy of the car with a cup of tea.
How behaves Citta? Citta glides from one object to another. Citta can not simultaneously be sent immediately to all. For example, a cup of tea on the car. Maybe our yogi something else sees any other objects or replicas are formed. Therefore, Chitta jumping from one to another, the third, the fifth, in general, all the objects that appear in the buddhi substance. And so just brute force and there is an effect that we perceive at the same time (we think) many different objects.
In fact, in each of a second we perceive only one object. But because These jumps chitta very fast and at each facility is very little time it stops, then it seems that we perceive at once all.
And this trajectory chitta (with some object on which to jump) is formed by the fact that it represents the previous objects. Those. This trajectory chitta plays a very important role in our lives. In fact, it determines our future behavior. But we talked about this a little later we'll talk.
Assume that yoga gave a new brand of tea and asked him to make an expert opinion whether it is suitable for use in yoga circles or not do. It is understood that the yogi tries to focus it on the tea, and trying not to enslave attention to passing cars, people, or any other circumstances.
So he tries to keep his Chitta on one object, in particular, on the tea, which he drank. And pay attention to other objects he tries less. Those. in its leapfrog jumping from one object to another, Chitta has priority objects which she visits frequently, and other objects, which she visits frequently.
And this effect when we make Chitta pay any object or phenomenon more such attempts to highlight it, called "attention". Therefore, we can say that the yogi can devote their attention to tea. Accordingly, his attention focused on the tea. His (attention) gets smaller (say) passing vehicles.
As you can imagine, a person or higher self yogi has the ability to direct the Chitta on the object to which it is our higher self wants to pay more attention.
Those. Here we have, respectively, to yield what is called free will of our Ya get a very interesting situation. In principle, our I, possessing free will, has the ability to direct light through the chitta Consciousness on the selected object and hold it (so to speak), without being distracted by other objects, which have passed through Manas, and were formed in the buddhi. For example, in addition to a car there is still some pretty sparrow flew. Here I draw his wings right now. In general, not very good I did. Let this be a sparrow.
On the one hand, our will, I have a tool that, despite all the distractions, to direct attention to the object or phenomenon to which I voleizyavlyaet our focus a little more, not paying attention to other objects or phenomena.
But, on the other hand, all the previous life experience of the yogi determines some automatic mechanism, paying attention to something else. Those. all previous experience forced to miss some other objects in the buddhi. And the experience of the previous life taught man that at least a fraction of the attention should be paid to other entities.
Indeed, if the car rides, and, say, a shower of rain, near this cafe a large pool, it is on this high speed can drive through a puddle and spray our yogi. Perhaps this has been more than once, that developed a mechanism. How would you not focused on, say, the taste of tea, previous experience (negative or positive) makes distracted yogi from the object on which it is focused.
And the part that makes him distracted, as you know, entirely predetermined by previous experience, or previous life, or karma. Those. all the baggage of knowledge and experience that have made a yogi.
It turns out that the attention of the yogi on the one hand to a certain extent determined by his free will, to a certain percentage, but starting from a certain percentage, is determined completely by previous experience.
And now there is a war between the ability to direct attention to the need to select an object and does not let this attention to be distracted by any other objects or phenomena, somehow intrude into the mind of a yogi. And this process of concentrating or paying attention to the correct and not to fall for the distraction of unnecessary, can be called succinct word "meditation".
But yoga is divided into several stages, and is called by different names. In particular, "Yoga Sutra Patanjali" is once more stages, which are called "pratyahar" "dharana" "dhyana" and respectively "SAMADHI with an object."
Or in other words, only our yogi begins to ignore everything that comes through our rough, respectively, subtle senses and learns at Manas prevent the flow of information in the buddhi, it is called "pratyahara". Or in one of the free translation - it's pulling the fine senses of the gross senses.
Then, inside the buddhi, you know, there is a variety of other objects that have had time to form. Those. before people saw something, I heard. And in his buddhi are these images, despite the fact that the eyes do not see anything, ears do not hear, nose smells. But it is what is called the "memory of the object."
Or, in particular, our yogi sitting in outdoor cafe. And at some point, closed his eyes and covered his ears, nose clothespin clamped. But he also was the image of clubs, which he had previously seen. As well as the image of a passing car, and in general the whole environment. Those. a photograph, a picture.
In this photograph, containing a large number of different objects still continues to run citta, but, like, have not received the new facilities. And this is a new stage "pratyahara".
Then, even when the yogi mental gaze is focused on one thing, avoiding something else, depending on the degree of concentration, it may be called "dharana" "dhyana" or "SAMADHI".
For example, if the yogi concentrated on the circle, but quite often his attention jumps on a car, or a bird, or even to something, depending on the degree of how often jumps, this condition is called "dharana". If less jumps, called the state of "dhyana" and if not jump, but completely focused on, respectively, the form of circles, this is called "samadhi with the object", where the object - a circle.
So, the key to meditation - attention control, or management of the ray of Consciousness that shines through Chitta and highlights the objects formed in the buddhi buddhi of substance.
But let's take a closer look, what's going on with this yogi sitting in outdoor cafe on Tverskaya Street in Moscow and sipping your favorite tea. So, buddhi is the image of a cup of tea, passing cars, birds, people passing on the street. But also in the yogi has some idea of himself.
Those. by his own senses give any representation, respectively, of its gross body or the emotions that he experiences. Friends, this image is no different from the external image that yogi receives through the senses. Or in other words: in buddhi likewise formed an exact copy of the yogi as he perceives himself. The same is sitting pretty, just smiling, just a pen holding a cup.
Thus we have a very interesting conclusion. All of what we call the external world with all the objects and phenomena of the external world and all of what we call the inner world with all the conglomerate of internal sensations and perceptions about themselves, in fact, occurs in buddhi. Or, going back to the previous lectures, it is in buddhi is that the division into the inner world, friends and the outside world.
Thus this picture with buddhi, citta, manas and the senses we have brought with you to the previous picture, which looked at all the lectures before. Thus, the concept of inner peace or the concept of the outside world, it is entirely the concept of our mind. And as it is in reality, in fact, we even you have no idea. Those. in the real universe may not even be the very notion that there is an inner world and the outer world. Those. all games of our mind. Or in this case, the mind games of yogi.
In his presentation yogi buddhi formed of himself, in the buddhi presentation yogi that he is sitting somewhere, doing something, something to drink, eating, talking, etc., etc.
And all of these images are formed, of course, with the help of these information flows passing through Manas and involving, respectively, of our senses, sight, touch, smell, tactile sensations. A total of 5 as you remember. But, in fact, they may not mean anything, they only form in our minds the concept of inner peace and the concept of the outside world. They form in our mind the concept that we have a body and somewhere in the body ends and the outside world begins.
Friends, this is entirely the concept of reason. Therefore, all the long work on the interaction of the inner universe, the outer universe, inner peace, outer peace we can bring to work with our mind.
This is a very good conclusion, it simplifies the lives of the poor, or yoga yogi, and giving absolutely fantastic results if you build a practice on these findings.
So, what do we have with you? In order to go further, let me redraw our picture on a different scale.
Friends, and the very idea of matrices still did not have a project, when these topics were discussed two or three thousand years. No, three thousand years ago vryatli. Everything is new, my friends, it's so well forgotten old, we are sometimes in such a revelation come, that this or that science fiction, writer, film producer doing some groundbreaking stuff, and this breakthrough things have this beard is big. And it is written, and it's all in the public domain. Just mankind does not bother to learn, wild yet mankind.
And the man who first has the opportunity to beat all these old ideas, comes to the fore. From time to time come the guys from psychology and I say, "Man, you can train the money row. Come on we all this will develop a five-dozen new psychological powerful training. Let's call them: "Training Vadim Zaporozhtseva. An insane amount of money for behold, the fifth, the tenth. "
But, my friends, this is hypocrisy. This knowledge does not belong to Vadim Zaporozhtseva, this knowledge of yoga, which many thousands of years. So call your name that is already known to mankind and to lock it for yourself, it's a dead-end brand. In terms of the enrichment of a single individual - it is a way out. And in terms of the dissemination of knowledge of yoga, which belong to all of humanity - is a dead end.
Strictly speaking, this is a very dangerous thing. The Open Yoga University is one of the most stringent requirements for students - this is if you have knowledge, you must bezpripyatstvenno pass it on. And if you start on this knowledge to put their copyrights, to protect copyrighted or otherwise introduce (what is called) progressive mankind into thinking you something, maybe he and grow rich, and humanity will lose. At the next evolutionary turn lost control, slips into the abyss and become extinct, like the dinosaurs, and you and your earned on their psychotechniques billion.
But we will return. So, I strongly recommend that, my friends, we are all with you pretend to be cultured people. There is a huge heritage of humanity: the philosophical treatises, narrative life of the ancient (including) yogis and Yoginis. Hand on heart, all the militants, all soap operas, all modern detectives just relax on the semantic loading, ie philosophical idea. When you read, moreover, that captured the story, you also open your eyes to the universe. So, you know, the very groundwork of the narrative.
But so many obstacles along the cost, ie, adequate translation. Man must stew in culture, tradition, not to dry something to pass, that can not be read, and something meaningful. Friends, Yoga Live, it's so exciting when you dive into it. And if you start to practice, then everything else will turn gray, faded and not interesting. Why? Not because it is bad, but because no one does not hold still to this level. This is our egoistic mind it says that we Western civilization, such steep, and we flew into space, and the fifth to tenth.
Yes, indeed, a breakthrough into space - a major breakthrough. But the bulk of mankind - the same dullness and wretchedness. Turn on the TV and see what top-rated program. And you will see, get an idea of the intellectual world of these people. See the new movies, it is turned inside out the brains of a filmmaker, it's full of wretchedness, a wretchedness. You know, even laugh once sin on sick people. And there they receive public recognition.
Budhi and remembrance
Let us us. So, all that is in our Manas, we basically can be divided into the inner world and the outer world. Accordingly, in the outside world projected all external objects or phenomena, perceived by the person. In the inner world - the whole conglomerate of sensations that a person relates to himself. More precisely, I mistakenly feels this inner world, one way or another formed by the action of the senses that have passed through Manas.
Here he is our man. And, in fact, that we have? If directly senses perceive something, then this picture is perceived.
But there is a very interesting feature of our buddhi. For example, the eyes no longer see anything, but it is the memory of what we have seen. Or enough to see once, to be able to hold within themselves the image that we see within ourselves without the feeding of information through the senses.
And here we come close to the following very serious conclusion Yoga Visualization. What's on the consequences for their actions, or objects or phenomena in our buddhi formed under the influence of the senses, it is very close to an object or phenomenon, formed as a result of mindfulness.
Indeed, sometimes the memories of a person about some pleasant moments of his life, or some unpleasant events of his life is compared in its effect. A person can take something and enjoy or remember something and suffer.
So, we have with you this ability to play buddhi objects or phenomena that have ever been seen by us, but now they do not fall within the field of action of our senses. And if we play them, we get action on these objects or phenomena, as if we saw them, heard, smelled, touched. This is a serious tool to work with reality or with our external inner world.
Moreover, note that there is in the whole logic of avoiding collision foreheads, or the clash of what is called "reality" or "hallucination." Just leave the question: where hallucination, and where reality. This know-how is yoga Visualization: to bypass the question, answer the people who still can not, in principle, until then, until he reached the highest state of yoga. But we need to move.
Come on, we continue. There is a direct object or phenomenon, there is a remembrance of the object or phenomenon, and is the next nice thing, which is called "mental construction", or in other words we can say "creative visualization."
What I mean? Suppose that our yogi sitting in outdoor cafe, where the sun shines on the street Tverskaya neighborhood, is an architect. And for this cup of tea he thinks of yoga palace that he had built. Or, say, a new building for the International Open Yoga University that had a large spacious room for meditation, a place for the individual practices, some halls for lectures, library, summer gardens, etc. And so it was all harmony, beautiful, environmentally friendly, due to the nature that no one no one interfered, and at the same time was able to communicate with their own kind.
Here the architect-yoga is given the task: to develop such a project. This is a very serious project. To develop it, it is necessary, first, on their skin feel yoga before any recommendations to give.
But we have already experienced yogi, he practiced for many years and currently represents about what else he had ever seen. Those. He sees a beautiful building, draw it as the Moscow State University. Here he sees it in every detail. And he sees it in the part of the buddhi, which is responsible for the external world. Of course, he was in this vision in the future can help a computer program. I forgot the name of arhitekrutraya program "Arhikap" or something like that.
But still, any program will do only what you want to see. Herself for you she did not come up. Anyway - the first step - it is a human step: creative visualization or mental construction. Of course, some elements of this mental construction will be copied with all that our yogi Architect seen in their other some projects, ie some good decisions and he suffers in the next draft.
But it would still, here there is something fundamentally new that has never happened before and no one. And here we are confronted with the following property of our higher self, which is thus realized through our mind as the ability of creativity or ability to do anything.
Moreover, let us present to you that our yoga is so good imagination, that he, for example, looking at the other side of Tverskaya Street is, and how it would look building, say, here also. Those. there is the ability to apply to certain objects in the buddhi, caused by the action of external objects or events with the picture, which is generated from the inside and have to witness it all together.
For example, our yogi architect at the time when he drank tea and visualized the future building of the International Open Yoga University, recalled the teachings of the ancient treatises on how to solve unsolvable problems imaging techniques of yoga. Or, in particular, our yogi architect knows that all it was not prescribed in the Yoga Open University building. But, as the ancient legend, a few centuries ago somewhere in the Himalayas, he lived another yogi architect who has reached the highest altitude in the architecture that made the huge number of ashrams, after all, what he wanted to achieve in life, she vanished into a rainbow, and reached the highest samadhi.
Once upon a time, was a master of architecture, who could solve any problem, including this one. And in this treatise were instructed to meditate on the image of the master in architecture, as in himself. Moreover, let a certain technique that first need to visualize yourself with the central channel of sky-blue color from the base of the body to the top of our heads with all other details related to that particular architectural practice.
Those. what psycho-enregeticheskie plexus is particularly attention. Or what chakras need to pay special attention to and to visualize them. And to create an image of the ancient masters of architecture and see themselves in this way. Those. man is that he is the master of architecture, ie, reincarnated in him.
What you say, this is one of the possible real-world practices. So this is our architect, not only what he sees the cup of tea, not only what he sees the plan of the future building of the Open University Yoga. But another part of his buddhi starts to visualize himself in the image of the great teachers of architecture.
Those. in his inner world, as there are two pictures. The first picture - an image of itself, ie the usual way, and the second image - an image of himself as the great masters or teachers of ancient architecture.
Those. we see that in the same way, as we argued in the previous lectures begins this interaction of images generated by the senses and generated by this creative visualization. And if you learn to properly combine them, to connect, you can get very interesting results at least for the simple reason that our higher self, which is beyond time and space, there is no fundamental difference between the way you visualized and the usual way, which so hang out in your buddhi under the influence of your senses and, accordingly, the previous experience.
And then, and another from the perspective of the self are equally real or equally unreal. Accordingly, the Yogi pays the same attention. Accordingly, the image that is the result of creative visualization or image that was formed by the senses, it is equally important to him for knowing whether the practice.
But, as you know and remember from previous lectures, there is a law of interaction of what we would call, the inner and outer world. It turns out that some creative visualization in buddhi, is responsible for our inner world, somehow affects those images, which, again, are we in the buddhi, and are responsible for the outside world.
And there is a certain correlation between the internal and external: internal to external influences, and the outer - to the inner. But internal and external care is within the buddhi. Or, in other words, the mind. And that would not have happened to our senses, hearing, sight, smell, touch, all this is secondary to the processes that occur in the mind.
Accordingly, if you control the mind, then you are subject to and everything else.
But now we let a few more complicate our story and add to this story this time. And since there is knowledge of the time?
So, I sense something is highlighted, Manas missed it, and it is something horrible in the buddhi, make an exact copy. But when the moment comes when we realize what is there to do? Clearly, this citta should highlight these copies in buddhi. But where is the line? Here is a copy of it appeared, and that it arose when we say, "Yeah, I understand, it has come!".
An example of a pink elephant
For example, such an example. Sitting our yogi, sipping tea and suddenly sees a column there. There and then - once in Budhi arose column very strange shape. Here in the buddhi times - and the other appeared a column inside the buddhi. The third column from the outside world, seen through the eyes of a yogi. The fourth column. Accordingly, the third and fourth column immediately arose in Budhi substance. A higher self yogi illuminates all this light of consciousness and can not understand that strange, wonderful.
Suddenly yogi, for example, raised his eyes, and these columns at the top bear against, say, a big tummy. Here, too, a large belly in the inner world buddhi formed. He still above raised his head, looking, big head, big ears, a big nose-trunk. And, accordingly, in the head, too, there is a head, with the nose, with a trunk. And our Yogi says: "Ah, so there is a pink elephant." In fact, the color of columns and tummy were pink.
Correspondence between name and form
And to a certain point, there was no knowledge of the process, and from a certain moment, like a flash of light as inspiration, as if all the puzzle together into a whole, it's comprehension.
And then, my friends, is very strange conclusion: when the same comes this comprehension with yoga point of view? And it sounds as follows. From the standpoint of Mantra Yoga, understanding occurs when the vesting name.
Once you have given it a name, do you comprehend that whatsoever. Very abstract, strange language, but we are extremely necessary. And in order to explain why we need a bunch of understanding and giving a name, we get back a few ago.
For example, here is a yogi sees a cup of tea. And we are told that in his buddhi arises replica of a cup of tea. But, says yoga, the process of emergence of this fine cup copies buddhi can be interpreted differently. The buddhi there thoughtform cup of tea. Those. a replica of buddhi substance, object or phenomenon is equivalent to the emergence of thought-forms. And any thought form has such a characteristic as a kind of painting thought forms of vibration.
Or in other words we can say that there was a replica of a cup of tea in the substance of buddhi. And you can put it another way: on the surface of the substance budhi a wave or ripple. Just as ripples occur in the pond when we throw at him stone. Or some kind of outrage, having a characteristic or any vibrating color.
And as soon as our buddhi surface began to shudder under the influence of the information had come from the senses and passed through Manas, it is equivalent to what occurred in the buddhi thought form generated by this information. Or, in Sanskrit it is called "vritti" (twist, swirl, if you give a free translation).
But the following interesting, interesting the following fact. At the same time, this vibration is vritti or color perturbations known to man, as a "word". When this vibration or disturbance passes through a series of metamorphoses (that we are not going to say), there is the concept of "words" or the name of the object or phenomenon that has arisen in this substance buddhi.
It is extremely important conclusion is that each name has its own form, and each form has its own name. Or, in Sanskrit, according to vzaimoznachnom frame and rupa. Rama - name, rupa - a form. And the process of understanding the form coincides with the process of understanding the name or the name of empowerment.
And this deep vibration that uniquely characterizes this or that object, is a kind of Praslovo or praimenem this object. And, according to another section of yoga, called mantra yoga, for all living beings, endowed with buddhi or develop buddhi, name and form are the same. Those. In other words, there is a single, comprehensible to all living beings with buddhi language.
Of course, under the influence of the language, it teaches Mantra Yoga, formed a regular language. Those. the very language in which we talk to you. After all, in fact, that it represents every word that you hear? It is the vibration of sound waves. Or those oscillations propagating in the air and generated, respectively, of our vocal apparatus. But our speech apparatus gives a particular modulation for a given sound pulses under the influence of certain anyway involved in the conversation.
Those. color of nerve impulses corresponds to the color of the sound waves, to fly with our lips. But our nerve impulses, one way or another, are formed under the influence of some other pulses, our subtle bodies, to analyze that we are not going to. And those, in turn, formed under the influence of the original vibration that occurs in the buddhi and connects the name and form.
So when our favorite Yogi realized that before him the pink elephant that goes on Tverskaya Street near his summer cafe, where he drinks tea, it immediately makes the exclamation: "Oh, the pink elephant is coming!".
And, let's say, he said it in Russian. And at the table opposite the sitting American yogi, who was also something about a pink elephant (a) faltered. You see, the question arises: we have an elephant, they have elephant. One in buddhi picture, the other the same picture. One vibration is one corresponding to this image, and the other is the same. A lip-flies are completely different words, and how can we explain this? That, despite the fact that in every human being, or (strictly speaking) living being there is the universal language. But human languages differ.
Or even complicate the situation. For example, immediately above the table flew sparrow cute. He looks down, and there - a pink elephant. And chirped, "Oh, pink elephants diverged." And I chirped, as you know, on his sparrow's tongue, which is different from Russian and English, and understandable except that only the other sparrows. But his eyes, they saw the same thing, buddhi formed the same.
The question is that before the vibration arose in Budhi, comes directly to our vocal apparatus, it is so badly distorted that it and caused (as claimed by Mantra Yoga) different languages. But, at the same time, there is a single parent language, which (again, according to these fantastic narrative in yoga) becomes available to any yoga or yogi who has reached certain heights in yoga.
So, we can say that buddhi there is a replica of the object. And we can say in another way, that buddhi formed thought form or vritti, or a certain wave of a certain color, uniquely corresponding to this object. And we can talk about buddhi work in terms of the form (replicas), and we can talk in terms of vibration (names). And in fact, no matter what terms you say or how you try to explain the processes occurring in the buddhi, there is a correspondence between name and form.
But still, here we do not deal with Mantra Yoga, we are engaged in yoga Visualization. And so we primarily important, what conclusion can we draw from all this to our favorite yoga Visualization. A conclusion is stunning and quite a powerful tool.
It consists in that, on the one hand, the object or budhi phenomenon may occur under the action of the sense organs as a consequence of a memory or as a consequence of the creative visualization or mental construct. And it may be the result of a word, directly generating a particular vibration, uniquely corresponding object.
Or, in other words, can we help manthras respectively in our budhi form the images of objects or events that we need. Or, repeating a particular mantra, we make these secret mantra yoga mechanisms operate that there are certain objects or events that match mantras with all the consequences as their action.
So, Mantra Yoga is used in the practice of yoga to enhance visualizations of certain practices, or even certain yoga exercises Visualization. And they do not lie in the fact that sometimes it is easier to correct mantra through, say, the part of the inner world in buddhi, is responsible for our perception of ourselves and change that image. Once we change obrza inner peace, he immediately applied to the part of buddhi, biting the outside world, and there, too, is changing.
And with the help of mantras in the colossal number of cases, this is much easier and safer. Therefore, in addition to remembering, mental construction in yoga visualizations and mantras are used more.
And now entirely under the curtain of today's lecture is the position you should also get a hold of a very strange position yoga Visualization. So, on the one hand, it came down to the fact that all of our outer world and the inner world, in fact, the two parts within our buddhi, which form what we call our inner and outer world.
With mindfulness, with the help of mantras, using creative visualization, we can adjust the inside buddhi, respectively, the inner and outer world. But initially we remember that all the images have arisen under the influence of our senses, which are beyond the boundaries of Manas bring this background information. And there is the question: well, well, inside buddhi you anything to do what you want to visualize visualization. And they will live as long as a new piece of information comes through the senses, as it were, of this external world outside Manas.
But, my friends, is not so simple. The fact that our consciousness functions in addition I receive, there is one ability - to act. Those. we have not only the consciousness which works through Chitta, but also energy, which again comes from our self, enters the buddhi and then makes some pulses to the outside world, where are our senses. And most interesting is that these impulses are coming from the buddhi through Manas on, are no longer on the senses, and organs of action.
Indeed, we have what we could call the action bodies (our hands, legs, our tongue, we can also call the action, and so the body). But we'll discuss this in the future, our today's lecture is completed.
