Witnessing is a catalyst to the action. Throughout our lives we rarely witness, and other times, we are subconsciously reacting. Hardly, there has been a cognition of the divisive line between witnessing and reacting. In this process of immediate uncontrolled reactions, we, humankind, are an accumulation of a myriad of impressions or sanskaras, which constantly condition our conscience. And the conditioning merely does not belong to one lifetime! It is like a vast tree whose fruits, hitherto independent, are interconnected by prana or life that is beyond the reach of human grasp. What is the nature of this conditioning? And how are we affected by the process of the same in levying control, or becoming a cause to our future sustenance?
