223,437 words | ISBN-10: 8171101519

The Sanskrit edition of the Yoga-vasistha including English translation and grammatical analysis. The Yogavasistha is a Hindu spiritual text written by Valmiki (who also authored the Ramayana) dealing with the philosophical topics from the Advaita-vedanta school. Chronologically it precedes the Ramayana.

Verse 7.51.21

चित्तमात्रतया बुद्धं मृगतृष्णाम्बुवत्स्थितम् ।
जाग्रत्स्वप्नत्वमायाति विचारविकलीकृतम् ॥ २१ ॥

cittamātratayā buddhaṃ mṛgatṛṣṇāmbuvatsthitam |
jāgratsvapnatvamāyāti vicāravikalīkṛtam || 21 ||

If it is viewed in the light of the mind or a creation of the mind, it proves to be as false as water in the mirage (because the phantasies of the mind present only false appearances to view). It proves at last to be a waking dream by the right understanding of it.
