One thought on “Australasian Philosophical Review (APR), Vol 2 Issue 1: Attention in Philosophy of Mind

  1. According to Sri Madhvacharya, the founder of Dvaita philosophy,
    the mind is the prototype of the eternal soul which soul every individual has in his body as experiencer. Mind is subtle body.
    Every individual takes 84 lakh lives through various species, to gain
    experience. Mind coexists with the eternal soul, until the 84 lakh lives
    are exhausted. It is very close to the soul. The living through 84 lakh lives helps the individual to gently seperate itself from the prototype called the mind. The soul, by now, is able to know its nature and moves toward its destination. Mind is Atheendraya vastu. Unseen sense organ. Helps to coordinate the input the 84
    lakh lives receive at appropriate timings.
    God Vishnu has appointed Rudra or Siva as the demigod for
    minds of individuals. Any prayer for betterment of mind is to be
    addressed to the Manoabhimani devata Rudra or Mind God Rudra
