The mind is Atman.


D.: In the book “Who am I?” you have said the Heart is the seat of
the mind. Is it so?
M.: The mind is Atman.
D.: Is it Atman itself or its projection?
M.: The same.

The mind when it remains permanently inward, in the Heart, then such a mind is Atman. It is also called Suddha Manas
and Dead Mind (mruta manas).

Arunachala Siva,

Knowledge implies subject and object.
But experience is non-terminal, eternal.

A gentleman from Bombay said: I asked Mother in Sri Aurobindo Ashram the following question: 'I keep my mind blank without
thoughts arising so that God might show Himself in His true Being. I do not perceive anything.

The reply (from Mother) was to this effect: The attitude is right. The Power will come down from the above. It is direct experience.

So he asked Sri Bhagavan what further he should do.

Sri Bhagavan: Be what You are. There is nothing to come down or become manifest. All that is needful is to lose the ego. That
what is, is always there. Even now you are That. You are not apart from It. The blank is seen by you. You are there to see the
blank. What do you wait for? The thought 'I have not seen', the expectation to see and the desire of getting something, are all
workings of the Ego. You have fallen into the snares of the ego. The ego says all these and not You. Be Yourself and nothing
more!

(Talks No. 183)

Arunachala Siva.,

Who else could have explained it so crystal clear than Bhagawan? Sooooooo true....I can imagine because I feel the same some days during self enquiry that mind is blank, why I am not "feeling anything" etc.

The Self is the Heart.
The Heart is self-luminous.

The moon shines by the reflected light of the sun.
When the sun has set, the moon is useful for revealing objects.
When the sun has risen, no one needs the moon, although
the pale disc of the moon is visible in the sky.

So it is with the mind and the Heart.
The mind is useful because of its reflected light.
It is used for seeing objects. When it is turned inwards,
the source of illumination shines forth by itself, and the mind
remains dim and useless like the moon in day-time.

Yatova imani bhutani jayante
(that from which these beings come into existence) etc.
is said to be Brahman in the Upanishads.
That is the Heart.
Brahman is the Heart.
