Yoga dictionary. Vritti

More often than not, the mind is either in a state of experiencing the past or planning for the future. This forces a person to experience many times again the suffering already experienced in the past, or to worry about their future. All these actions of the mind are due to its fluctuation. The Yoga sutras of Patanjali deal with the concept of Vritti.

By the Moon one can understand objective reality, which, provided the mind is calm, is reflected in it without distortion. When the water begins to be affected by the wind, it begins to fluctuate, and the reflection of the moon becomes distorted. The water in the pond is the mind of the living entity, and by the wind one can mean just Vritti — its vibrations. And under the influence of Vritti, the mind begins to distort objective reality. That is the danger of such a thing as Vritti. Continue reading

There may be, in general, strange dreams – this is normal – the effect of cleansing the deep layers of consciousness. and most importantly, you will feel much more warmth, freedom in your soul. Even (!) If, at first, the text of meditation does not turn into a sincere emotion of forgiveness. It is enough that you will pronounce the text to yourself and do the practice regularly.
