Samskaras: Shri Kamlesh D Patel


How do we form samskaras? By repeated thoughts, leading to actions that become habits, and these impress upon our minds.

No Samskaras

The best of all is to lead such a life that we don’t form samskaras at all.
Taken from the book "Designing Destiny (2nd edn., 2015)", Chapter "Preventing Impressions from Forming", pg. 88, by Kamlesh D. Patel

Observation: In Sahaj Marg system of Raja Yoga meditation, emphasis is laid on

  1. Removing past Samskaras or impressions that have been accumulated, and 
  2. On how to lead a life in such a way we don't form further Samskaras. 

The past Samskaras are removed using the Cleaning process as explained in the Sahaj Marg and Shri Ram Chandra Mission websites, and also on this Wiki page. As mentioned in this Wiki page, the cleaning of impressions (Samskaras) is unique to this system of Sahaj Marg Raja Yoga meditation.
