Type of Spiritual Experience

Background

So the source of evil is the Intellect – Memory, Desire and Ego combined and the 5 senses

A description of the experience

The Bhagavad Gita [translated by W J Johnson]

So what is it that impels a man to do evil…, even unwillingly, as though compelled to it by force?

The Lord said…

It is desire, it is anger, produced from the constituent of passion, all consuming, all injuring; know that that is the enemy here

As a fire is covered by smoke and a mirror by dust; as an embryo is covered by a sac, this world is enveloped by that

By this perpetual enemy of the wise, by this insatiable fire in the form of desire, knowledge is obscured…

It is said that the senses, the mind and the intelligence are its locality, having obscured a man’s knowledge with these it deludes the embodied self
