Isn't Taimni a modern commentator? trying to provide support for an 
interpretation of an 
ancient text by using a modern commentary on the text is well, kinda circular.

The phrase is:

hirdaye chitta samvi

Assuming a meaning and then doing a commentary on that assumption is fine but 
YOU 
can't use that assumption and commentary to prove that this is a heart chakra 
thing.

MMY's exposition of samyama doesn't use this chakra interpretation, for 
instance. I believe 
his itnerpretation is simpler, and in fact, if it is valid, more complication 
interpretations 
become suspect automatically.
