Lessons from Amanaska Yoga

Putting on ochre garments, holding a skull, plucking out strands of hair, maintaining heretical observances, ashes, an ascetics clothes (and) dreadlocks; intoxication, nakedness (and) conferences on the poetry of the Vedas, Tantras etc in assemblies... All (this) is exerting oneself for the sake of filling the stomach (and) is not the cause of the highest (good).

The mind indeed is the cause of liberation and bondage of men. The mind that clings to sense objects (leads) to bondage; the mind free from sense objects (leads) to liberation.
When (the yogi) is freed from sense objects, knowledge of an external (world) does not exist. And when knowledge of an external (world) has disappeared, then the yogi becomes equable with all things.
