The body

Photo taken inside Virupaksha Cave, Arunachala, 2006.

O Raghava, what have you to do with this dumb and inert body? Why do you feel helpless and miserable by joys and sorrows on account of it?

The mere knowledge that this body is like a piece of wood or a clod of earth enables one to realize the Supreme Self.

-- Yoga Vasistha Sara Ch.7, v.12, v.14
