Los sabios y ascetas indios, mucho antes de la psicología profunda, se vieron llevados a explorar las zonas más oscuras del inconsciente: verificaron que los condicionamientos fisiológicos, sociales, culturales o religiosos eran relativamente fáciles de delimitar y, por consiguiente, de dominar.

"Experienta umana, de orice natura ar fi ea, da nastere la suferinta. Trupul este durere fiindca este lacasul durerii; simturile, obiectele, preceptiile sant suferinta, fiindca duc la suferinta; placerea insasi este suferinta, fiindca este urmata de suferinta."
