Bhagwan, D. (2012). Mind can be contained through awakened awareness (Gujarati Dadavani December-2012). Retrieved from

After attaining the experience of Self (Atmagnan), one understands that ‘I am a pure Soul (Shuddhatma), completely free from mind, speech and body. What then, is the natural work of the Self? It is to ‘see’ the natural work of the mind, intellect and senses, as separate. The mind is to be known (gneya) and the Self is the Knower (Gnata). What is the relationship between the ‘Gnata’ and the ‘gneya?’ It is to ‘see’ the thoughts of the mind. One is not to become one with it. The One who ‘knows’ the thoughts is the Self. Gnan is the only thing that the mind can be bound by. Otherwise the mind can never be bound. When the mind is bound, it means that one will no longer suffer from the results of being engrossed in the state (avastha) of the mind, and as a result, one will stop from binding dangerous karma. The ‘charging mind’ stops after taking Gnan. The ‘discharging mind’ stays, which will exhaust by ‘seeing’. Now, it does not get any new energy. The old energy gets dissipated and exhausted. To remain separate from the mind is called purushartha after attaining the Self. The awakened awareness (jagruti) increases as this purushartha increases. It is the jagruti that makes one know that this is a ‘gneya and I am ‘Gnata,’ even as a thought arises. One has to take this jagruti to a level where one can remain as Gnata-Drashta (Knower-Seer) of the mind. Then this jagruti will take care of jagruti. Dadashri says that, “‘We’ (Gnani Purush) are showing the path that ‘we’ have seen, known, and experienced. We are telling you the method that ‘we’ have used and how ‘we’ have become free. Now when You follow what I show You, it will come into Your practice. Then You will have no problem for Your moksha.”
