CONCEPT OF MANAS (MIND) IN NĀSTIKA DARSHANA

Hetal D Amin, Rohit Sharma

Abstract


Various concepts in Ayurveda as well as the Darshana (philosophical texts) are untouched or unexplored. Concept of Manas (mind) is one among them and being a nonfigurative phenomenon it makes complicated to be explained and understood; perhaps, because of this, the descriptions related to Manas in Indian classics are supported by mythology, to make them acceptable. Variations in these explanations are seen according to the purpose of the school of thought; although all explanations appear to be covered in uncertainty; there definitely seems to be a logical and rational science behind these quotations. They only need research, analysis and explanation on the basis of logic. Here, an attempt is made to highlight the concept of Manas in Nastika Darshana.

Key words- Manas, Nastika, Darshana
