Example text

Since this holy man has no such notion (and hence he is truly bodiless) he is beyond your reach.  He shines in cosmic consciousness as a painting in the mind of an artist.  Mortal beings have two bodies, as it were, one physical and the other spiritual, but the unborn Creator has only the spiritual, since the cause that gives rise to the physical does not exist in him.  The Creator's thought being the cause of this manifold creation and the Creator himself having no physical body, the creation, too, is truly of the nature of thought, without materiality.

This is obvious; but what is called fate is fictitious and is not seen.  It is only by such effort that Indra became king of heaven, that Brahma* became the creator, and the other deities earned their place.  There is constant conflict between these two in this incarnation; and that which is more powerful triumphs.  Hence, one should take recourse to self­effort, grinding one's teeth, and one should Page 26 overcome evil by good and fate by present effort.  One should not revel in the filth known as sense­pleasures as a worm revels in pus.

Hence everyone—gods, demons, demigods or men should constantly seek (whether one is walking, falling or sitting) the conquest of the mind and self­control which are the fruits of wisdom. When the mind is at peace, pure, tranquil, free from delusion or hallucination, untangled and free from cravings, it does not long for anything nor does it reject anything. This is self­control or conquest of mind—one of the four gate­keepers to liberation which I mentioned earlier.  None (not even demons and goblins) hates him.
