In this city of Brahman is the small lotus which is the palace; in it is the consciousness. From saṃyama on it, awareness of the mind.
On the heart, awareness of the mind. In this city of Brahman the body, is the small little lotus, the lump of flesh in the form of a lotus with its head turned down, which is the palace, like a palace in that it is the many-channelled meeting-place of the various nerves. In it is the consciousness (vijñāna) the mind (citta). From saṃyama on it, on the lotus which is strung on the tube that hangs in the lake of the breast, and which is the meeting-place of the life currents (prāṇa), comes awareness of the mind the sattva.
