VRITTIS

Swami Sivananda

The painful Vrittis are of five kinds, viz., Avidya (ignorance) Asmita (self-sense) Raga (love), Dvesha (hatred) and Abhinivesa (love of life and fear of death). Do not identify yourself with the Vrittis. Be a Sakshi or silent witness of the Vrittis. Be indifferent. You can control the Vrittis and attain Atma-Jnana. If there is only one Vritti of God, it is Savikalpa Samadhi. If there is no Vritti at all, it is Nirvikalpa Samadhi. Yoga is the restraint of the Vrittis. Do not identify yourself with the Vrittis and attain Nirvikalpa Samadhi. Annihilate all Vrittis. Identify yourself with Brahman. Become a Brahma Jnani.


God reveals Himself to those who are humble, simple and pure.

- Swami Sivananda
