the mind that frees us or enslaves





It is the mind that frees us or enslaves.
Driven by the senses we become bound;
Master of the senses we become free.
Those who seek freedom must master their senses.

When the mind is detached from the senses
One reaches the summit of consciousness.
Mastery of the mind leads to wisdom.
Practice meditation.  Stop all vain talk.
The highest state is beyond reach of thought,
For it lies beyond all duality.




~ The Amritabindu Upanishad
