BLESSED RELIEF, EMPTYING THE WORLD FROM THE MIND

olvidarGurujiby Swami Shankaratilaka

Vṛttayaḥ pañcatayyaḥ kliṣṭākliṣṭāḥ

Pramāṇa-viparyaya-vikalpa-nidrā-smṛtayaḥ

Anubhūta-viṣayāsaṃpramoṣaḥ smṛtiḥ

śabda-jñānānupātī vastu-śūnyo vikalpaḥ

There are so many disturbances that devastate the men´s life, the received culture leads us to the mistake of the conjecture, it contaminates the mind with preconceived prejudices, it takes us away from the reality with constant fantasies, it immerses us in the indolence that ties hearts and finally it torments us with the constant remembering.

The memory is the constant presence of what is outside of the sphere of time. It is the moment of beginning to forget. To say good-bye. Blessed relief, taking the world out of the mind.

Break the structure of the mind apart, leave it empty and without link.

Abhyāsa-vairāgyābhyāṃ tan-nirodhaḥ

What a relief not remembering!

I wish I remember that I must forget!
