The nine different states are as follows:
The word originates from the Upanishads, a collection of Hindu sacred texts. Today the word Navras has become part of Indian culture. It has risen above the boundaries of religion.
The ten ways of experiencing these Nine Ras are the Five Karmendriyas : eye, ear, nose, tongue & skin, and the five Gnanendriyas, or the five separate centers in the brain which perceive all the sensations that the Five Karmendriyas convey to the brain.
The eleventh way of enjoyment is mind. It can enjoy without involving all the ten indriyas listed above. For example, a young man is day dreaming about buying a racing car. He does not have the car. But in his mind, he is already enjoying the car.
Most people are living in mind most of the time. Love, fear, anxiety, anger, dreams & so on do not need the indriyas. They are felt in the mind.
When a person rises above the material world and is in love with God, he is enjoying the twelfth Ras- Bhakti Ras, devotion to God.
The Matrix movies borrow heavily from the concept of the One's Path explained in the Upanishaads and the Bhagavad Gita - the holiest Hindu scripture that depicts the dialogue between confused prince Arjun and Krishna, who teaches him The Path.
It is said that this particular blend is good for the mind and the respiratory system, and it was featured in a recent episode of Patrolling with Sean Kennedy.
