Our right brain concentrates in itself the function of the consciousness that is called the mind (Manas). This feature allows us to distinguish between what we like and what we dislike. A left brain concentrates the functions of consciousness that is called the intelligence (Buddhi). This feature allows us to distinguish the useful from the useless. And between the two brains, between these two components of consciousness is a constant struggle for power over the body. That’s where the real politics happens – in our own head.
There are various yogic treatises. With one, you can tune/customize the space in which we find ourselves – a treatise on yoga of architecture, Vastu Shastra, or Feng Shui. There are books of the body – it is Ayurvedic treatises on health. There treatises that study the psychology, mind – it is Jyotish or astrological treatises. And the Bhagavad-Gita – a treatise for the development of the intelligence. This is the treatise for the winners, the treatise for those who understand that in the mind, like the two armies facing each other, there are two opposites: positive and negative, low and sublime, material and spiritual.
