More Teachings From Vivekachudamani

“I am the body”, thus alone thinks the foolish man. “A combination of the body and soul”, thus indeed does a learned man consider himself to be. But, one possessing knowledge born of discrimination, for such a great realized soul, “I am Brahman”, thus alone thinks he who has identification with the Eternal Self.

The body, sense organs, etc., are unreal, and are products of delusion however learned one may be, false identification, as long as it is not given up, so long, for him there can be not even the talk of liberation; even if he be very well-versed in all the intricacies of Vedanta philosophy.

With the shadow of your body, or with your own reflection or even with your own self in dream, or for that matter any imagination of yourself – Just as you would not identify yourself with these in the least, so too, with your living BODY you should not identify yourself even one bit.

Identification with the body is the only cause of man’s attachment to the unreal of the misery of birth and all its modifications. It is the seed of all sorrow. Therefore, to destroy it you should put in all your efforts If this identification caused by mind is renounced, there can be no chance of transmigration.
