We should read the text properly according to Krama and analyze words according to correct grammatical rules, when we shall get their real meaning. There are some who would include the mind in the intellect; but it is possible to regard it as a separate entity too. The mind is associated with the Moon in the text of the Vedas and other sacred books; and this should enable us to understand the law of life.
But the full moon also refers to a fixed point of time, implying that the mind can be properly controlled. On the other hand, possession
signifies impropriety of conduct, for there is no fixed time for it. The connection between the mind and the Moon is based on reason. The same word should have the same meaning throughout. Food does not minister directly to the intellect; but goodness is associated with
both the intellect and the soul.
