Mind and Sat.
« on: December 01, 2012, 07:26:06 PM »
Devotee: It is so difficult to spot the mind. The same difficulty is shared by all.

Maharshi: You can never find mind through mind. Pass beyond it it order to find its non existence.

Devotee: Then one must directly go to seek the ego. Is it so?

Maharshi: That's it.

Mind, ego, intellect are all different names for one single inner organ (antahkarana). The mind is only aggregate of  thoughts.
Thoughts cannot exist but for the ego. So all thoughts are pervade by ego (aham). Seek therefore wherefrom the 'I' arises and
the other thoughts will disappear.   

Devotee: What remains over cannot be 'I' but  Pure Consciousness.

Maharshi: Quite so. You start seeking happiness. On analysis you find that misery is caused by thoughts. They are called the
mind. While trying to control the mind, you seek the 'I' and get fixed in Being-Knowledge-Bliss, Sat Chit Anandam.
