5. Swami Chinmayananda

Mind is the man, as the mind so the individual. If the mind is disturbed, the individual is disturbed. If the mind is good, the individual is good. This mind, for purposes of our study and understanding, may be considered as constituted of two distinct sides. One facing the world of stimuli that reach it from the objects of the world, and the other facing the ‘within’ which reacts to the stimuli thus received. The outer mind facing the object is called the ‘objective mind’ (manah), and the inner mind is called the ‘subjective mind’ (buddhi).
