What is Mind?

Mind (What is greater than speech?)

Commentary by Sankaracarya

Mind is greater than Speech. - 'Mind' stands for the internal organ as endowed with the function of reflecting. When the mind performs the operation of reflecting, it urges the speech to say what has to be said. Hence speech becomes included under the act of mind. Mind instruct one to perform actions, When mind desires son and cattle, he will work for it. When one's mind is indulge in worldly thoughts, he will act accordingly. The Lord presence in everyone's mind. A learned person should use the mind to understand the Supreme Lord who is the creator and the beauty of the Vedas. So the mind was given to understand the Brahman (Supreme Personality of Godhead).
