By Swami Harshananda

Sometimes transliterated as: Vyutthanasanskara, VyutthAnasanskAra, Vyutthaanasanskaara


Vyutthānasanskāra literally means ‘impressions of the waking state’.

States of Mind

According to the Yogasutras of Patañjali[1] the mind generally has two states:

  1. Vyutthāna - rising
  2. Nirodha - suppressed

Nirodhasaṅskāra

The rising of the vṛttis[2] is prompted by the sanskāras[3] lurking in the mind. The science of yoga advises the aspirant to suppress the rising of the vṛttis by using the steps recommended by it. This is technically called as nirodha. It is same as the cittavṛttinirodha.[4] As nirodha or suppression is practiced more and more, the nirodhasaṅskāra[5] becomes stronger. Once this is achieved, the mind becomes more and more quiet and peaceful.[6]
