said: If you are seeking liberation, my son, shun the objects of the
senses like poison. Practise tolerance, sincerity, compassion,
contentment and truthfulness like nectar.
1.2 You are neither
earth, water, fire, air or even ether. For liberation know yourself
as consisting of consciousness, the witness of these.
1.3 If only you
will remain resting in consciousness, seeing yourself as distinct
from the body, then even now you will become happy, peaceful and
free from bonds.
1.4 You do not
belong to the Brahmin or any other caste, you are not at any stage,
nor are you anything that the eye can see. You are unattached and
formless, the witness of everything-so be happy.
and unrighteousness, pleasure and pain are purely of the mind and
are no concern of yours. You are neither the doer nor the reaper of
the consequences, so you are always free.
