“Through study let one practise yoga. Through yoga let one concentrate on study. By perfection in study and in yoga the Supreme Soul shines forth clearly.” (Vyasa)

 
The most famous book as far as yoga is concern is Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras.
Patanjali set down his most famous words: “yogash chitta-vritti-nirodhah, “Yoga is the restraint of the modifications of the mind.”
For Patanjali, all these identifiable elements–thoughts, feelings, intentions, motives and desires (conscious and unconscious)–are chittavrittis, mental modifications which must be seen as hindrances to contemplative calm.
Can we say that we are in full control of our thoughts?
NO!
WHY?
Does it mean that our mind it is out of control?
The easiest way so far to control our thoughts is awakening of Kundalini.
When the Kundalini rises, these thoughts elongate. There is a space, very small, between the thoughts (vilamba), which spread out, and a state of complete silence is created. Then, we are in the present, but without thoughts, without any worry, without any anger and we stand in the present, which is the reality, and the past is no more and the future does not exist.
