Remember Mind Bind from just 3 years ago?
The Amritabindu Upanishad which my Guru keeps referencing (because it is so awesome!) says mana-eva kaaranam mokshaaya bandhaaya. The mind alone is the reason, for both liberation and bondage. Said simply, the mind is both the problem, and the solution.
He recently in a talk beautifully added a couple more rhyming words at the end.
mana-eva kaaranam mokshaaya bandhaaya
mana-eva kaaranam dukhaaya sukhhaaya
mana-eva kaaranam maanaaya apamaanaaya
mana-eva kaaranam sarva vishayaaya!
So simply profound!
