From Discourse IV: "Kaivalya Pada- On Realization"

IV.4. NIRMANA-CITTANY ASMITA-MANTRAT

'Minds are created only from egotism'.

The mind is not the Self. It proceeds out of ego, or separation from the Self, and must be transcended to return to the Self.

IV.5. PRAVRTTI-BHEDE PRAYOJAKAM CITTAM EKAM ANEKESAM

'Although the pursuits of the many (created minds) vary, they are controlled by the one Mind'.
