Desires as conditionings, limitations


Vasanas (predispositions)* can be obliterated. It is done by concentration on that which is free from vasanas and yet is their core.
Ramana Maharshi

*Predispositions, latent tendencies or conditionings  (desires are that) that cling to the individual. Also called samskara-s. Pure mind, pure Consciousness is free from all conditionings or limitations. You are That.
