An Indian Civilizational Perspective

Neither Body Nor Mind

I generally get daily quotes from Beliefnet.com – here is one I got today. I really liked it so wanted to share it with all.

He has no staff nor tuft nor sacred thread.
He faces heat and cold, pleasure and pain,
Honor and dishonor with equal calm.
He is not affected by calumny,
Pride, jealousy, status, joy or sorrow,
Greed, anger, or infatuation,
Excitement, egoism, or other goads;
For [the illuminated man] knows he is neither body nor mind. <!–
