Steady Wisdom: 108 Verses On Changing My Thinking
Knowing I am the self, I see I am not touched by virtue or vice, just as the sky is not touched by smoke, even though it appears to be.
-Ashtavakra Samhita 4:3
Virtue and vice belong to the body-mind which appears in me, consciousness, like smoke appearing in space. Just as space is untouched by smoke, I am untouched by the virtue and vice of the body. OM.
