Steady Wisdom: 108 Verses On Changing My Thinking
I am not the body, nor the prana, nor the sense organs, nor the ego, nor the mind, nor the intellect. I am the eternal consciousness that witnesses them all.
-Sarva Vedanta Siddhanta Sara Sangraha V.835
How can I even speak of the body-mind and its various functions? It is because they are all known to me, the consciousness that illuminates them. And just as the sun is never the objects it illuminates nor is it affected by them, I am never the body-mind that I illuminate nor am I affected by it. OM.
