On Account Of The Immutability Of Purusa Who Is Master Of The Mind, The Modifications Of The Mind Are Always Known Or Manifest.


The modifications of the mind are always known to its lord on account of the changelessness of the Purusa.

Sw. Satchidananda

Due to Its changelessness, changes in the mind-stuff are always known to the Puruṣa, who is its master.


The permutations of the mind are always known to its Lord, the purusha soul, because of the soul’s unchanging nature.
