One Is Freed When the False Thought Becomes Extinct – Yoga Vasishta



Immutable, unchanging, consciousness is the reality and nothing else exists. One becomes bound by one’s own false thought and one is freed when the false thought becomes extinct.

You have attained with all your mind that which is to be attained. O seer! You crave not for any objective matter. You are liberated. Abandon the delusion.

That all these sense pleasures cannot entice the mind is the distinguishing characteristic of the enlightened persons.

The contemplation of objects intensifies the bondage though it is unreal; with the desire for objects decreasing, the bondage in the world is weakened.
– Yoga Vasishta
