Ihaiva tair jitaḥ sargo yeṣhāṁ sāmye sthitaṁ manaḥ
Nirdoṣhaṁ hi samaṁ brahma tasmād brahmaṇi te sthitah//5,19
If the mind is devoid of all doshams and is established in equanimity then it is not different from the Brahman.
By doing the above, the mind will be free and be one with the Brahman here and now.
Think for yourself..what makes the mind seemingly different from the Brahman?
The mind is different from the Brahman because of its sanga towards the 3 instruments of action(Tri-karanam(thoughts, speech, body)).
However, in contrast to the mind, the Brahman is devoid of any sanga hence nir-dosham and samam at all times.
Nirdoṣhaṁ hi samam Brahma..
What is sanga? How is our mind attached or to what is it attached to?
Sanga means attachment towards something that is different from it.
Here, our mind is attached to the
- Thoughts that appear in it
- Body that it possesses
- Actions that is done by the Indriyas
Because of this attachments, our mind is anxious, not samam. For the same reason, It is also poisoned and is filled with dosham.
So, what stands between the mind from being the Brahman? Sanga
Has the sanga done any good to the mind? The answer is a definite No
Because, the Tri-karana which the mind is attached to- will erode with passage of time.
- Body will loose its agility,
- Thoughts will be displaced and
- Speech will be impaired.
So, what will then the mind be left with? Only sorrow, pain and the attachment towards them will continue to linger.
Only a realised mind can be one with the Creator and its experience is beyond elucidation. And cognition of this for a mind that is living in the illusion is close to impossible
It is NOT worth living in an illusory bubble that will burst into nothingness in no time.
It is only wise to uplift the mind beyond its own illusionary creation to the only Truth.
