This body is mortal always gripped by death but within it dwells the immortal Self – Upanishads

This body is mortal always gripped by death but within it dwells the immortal Self…
There is only one means to control one’s mind, that is to destroy thoughts as soon as they arise…
When all the desires that surge in the heart are renounced, the mortal becomes immortal.
When all the knots that strangle the heart are loosened, the mortal becomes immortal…
When, to a man who understands, the Self has become all things, what sorrow, what trouble can there be to him who once beheld that oneness… Upanishads
