The most important mental function to cultivate in yoga philosophy is known as buddhi. The buddhi is the highest aspect of our mind, and is considered the doorway to inner wisdom, spiritual discernment, and eventually enlightenment. In most of us, the buddhi function is weak and hidden by ego, emotion, attachment. To connect and strengthen the buddhi requires a carful examination of the mind’s processes and a weakening of our ahamkara (the i-maker or ego) through the diligent practice of meditation and yoga. When it is purified and strengthened, the buddhi provides a clear reflection of consciousness, improved discrimination and a deepened source of wisdom.
