Renunciation is Renouncing the Mind

  • Renunciation is Renouncing the Mind

    Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha

Through the conversation between Kumbha and the ascetic king Shikhidwaja, Swamiji explains what is ‘Renunciation’. He says Renunciation is of the mind – as everything is felt by the mind, experienced by the mind. The mind, being consciousness, has got infinite powers. By virtue of these powers, it produces the gross objects, preserves them and makes us experience them. Thus, everything is a mental creation – in the mind by the mind. It is such a mind that we have to renounce. Renouncing the mind means renouncing the ego, ‘I’ feeling. Ego is the seed from which the whole world tree is spreading forth.

The mind has the power and potential to produce and unproduce anything. Throughout the wakefulness, it spreads, extends and becomes, but at the end of the day it folds up into sleep, where there is no world, no ego is there. The world rises in the mind and sets in the mind. All the thoughts arise in the mind and also get dissolved into the mind.

We want to reach a state where the idea of a thought itself becomes a non-entity. The same mind which becomes doubtful, can be happy and clear. It is possible for us to use our discrimination to understand this wonderful Sadhana and be benefitted by it.
