Sw. Satchidananda

Although the functions in the many created minds may differ, the original mind-stuff of the Yogi is the director of them all.


There is one mind, among the many [created by the yogi] which is the director in the different activities [of the different bodies]


The one (natural) mind is the director or mover of the many (artificial) minds in their different activities.


One (Principal) Mind Directs The Many Created Minds In The Variety Of Their Activities.
