Om Namasivaya Nama:
Self and Mind Control to realize Paramathma Chaithanyam:
With a regulated mind and a purified intellect (Budhi), one should realize the Self while in this body (before death of the body). Acharya says, one should identify yourself with it because That is what you are!. This will help you in crossing the shore-less ocean of birth and death cycle (Samsara). Such birth and deaths are considered as waves of the ocean. Be blessed by getting established firmly with Brahman because that is what your own essence. Controlled mind means purified intellects (Sudha Sathwam, not general Sathwa). As we know the quadruple principle viz Mana, Budhi, Ahankara and Chitham supplement each other to function day to day life, in reality they are one and the same. One can control or regulate the mind by doing Upasana and Meditation. First to start with Upasana and then practice Meditation is the easy way of establish knowledge of Brahman.
