About Purna - Whole



The Self is whole, full and without any qualities. And thus it is difficult for the impure mind to perceive the Self. Everything that we perceive through our senses in the mind is not perfect, non-self and impermanent. The intellect can only perceive something that is with names and forms. Something which is beyond names and forms is unknown to the intellect. But once the mind is purified, we will know that this Self in us and in every beings are the same pure consciousness, unlimited and unconditioned, unborn, undecay and undestructable. We will know that we are not the body, not the mind, not the intellect, not the ego, not the breathing, not the heartbeat, not the thoughts, not the feelings, not the senses, not the sensations and not all the names and forms that we can perceive through the senses. And thus we will be free from the bondage of all the names and forms, such like birth and death, fears and worries, likes and dislikes, cravings and aversions, happiness and unhappiness.

We all are different under the perception of the mind. We look different, behave differently; we think, speak and act differently. But after take away all the qualities of different names and forms, we all are the same consciousness but having different levels of impurities and self-control.

All the yoga practices like observances, restraints, asana, pranayama, detachment, concentration and meditation is to prepare ourselves to go beyond all the qualities of names and forms, and to be able to see our true Self with the eyes of wisdom.

Once we are beyond all the names and forms; and all the dualities, we will be silent, speechless, no more arguments and doubts. Because we cannot describe something which is beyond the perception of the impure mind and the limited intellect.
