Maharshi's Gospel and Tallks - 13
« on: June 21, 2009, 02:43:17 PM »
Talk No. 195:

Mr. Jharka, a gentleman from the University of Benares,
holding the M.A and the M.Sc degrees, said that he was
stricken with grief due to bereavement of wife and children.
He sought peace of mind and asked to get it.

Bhagavan:  It is in the mind that birth and death, pleasures
and pains, in short, the world and ego exist.  If the mind is
destroyed, all these are destroyed too.  Note that it should be
annihilated, not just made latent.  For the mind is dormant in
sleep.  It does not know anything.  Still, on waking up, you
are as you were before. There is no end of grief.  But if the
mind is destroyed, the grief will have no background and will
disappear along with the mind.

Devotee:  How to destroy the mind?

Bhagavan:  Seek the mind.  On being sought, it will disappear.

Devotee:  I do not understand.

Bhagavan:  The mind is only a bundles of thoughts.  The
thoughts arise because thre is the thinker.  The thinker
is the ego.  The ego, if sought, will vanish automatically.
The ego and the mind are the same.  The ego is the root
thought from which all other thoughts arise.

Devotee:  How to seek the mind?

Bhagavan:  Dive within.  You are now aware that the mind
rises up from within.  So sink within and seek.

Arunachala Siva.
