XIV.  Janaka on the natural Dissolution of the Mind

  1. Janaka said: The wise one who is void-minded by nature perceives objects through inadvertence and is seen as awake though physically asleep. Verily his memories (of the world) are extinguished.
  2. As my desires melt away, where can be my riches, my friend, my thieves taking the form of sense-objects, where can be the scripture and where the wisdom?
  3. As I have known the Supreme Self who is the eternal Person as the Witness and who is the Lord, I have no desire for bondage and liberation, nor care for salvation.
