Subtle mind

The subtle mind continues from life to life, but does not carry all the information necessary. The subtle mind is not considered an entirely safe container or "Swiss bank" for all the information that travels from life to life. The subtle mind can be influenced by external factors. The very subtle mind is the "clear light of mind." It has nothing to do with body functions. However, it remains inactive during our lives, its latent potential activated at death.
