Anandamurti starts the discourse by explaining the concept of dharana (a dynamic force of concentration within the mind) and its importance to the practice of mind withdrawal. He then explains that the mind's propensities have to be goaded towards the citta (objectivated I feeling); otherwise, the misguided propensities will create an adverse effect on the mind. next, the citta will be guided towards the ahaḿtattva (the doer I) and the ahaḿtattva towards the mahattattva (pure I feeling). Anandamurti goes on explaining that to achieve a complete freedom from bondage, one has to withdraw all the mental propensities together with the citta, ahaḿtattva, and mahattattva and merge them in the Supreme Cognition. That last stage is the ultimate goal of human longing.
