Story: Free Up Your Mind


“Adi Sankara was strolling through the commercial center with his followers.

They saw a man hauling a cow by a rope.

Sankara advised the man to pause and requested that his supporters encompass them.

“I will show you something” and proceeded…

“Disclose to me who is bound to whom? Is the cow bound to this man or the man is bound to the cow?”

The devotees said without a second thought “obviously the cow is bound to the man!. The man is the expert. He is holding the rope. The cow needs to follow him any place he goes. The man is the expert and the cow is the slave.”

“Presently watch this”, said Sankara and took some scissors from his pack and cut the rope.


The cow fled from the expert and the man pursued his cow. “See, what’s going on”, said Sankara

“Do you see who the Master is? The cow isn’t at all inspired by this man. The cow indeed, is attempting to escape from this man.

This is the situation with our MIND.

Like the cow, all the non-sense that we convey inside isn’t keen on us. WE ARE INTERESTED IN IT, we are keeping it together in some way or another or the other. We are going off the deep end attempting to keep it all together under our influence.

The second we lose interest in all the trash filled in our mind, and the second we comprehend its vanity, it will begin to vanish. Like the cow, it will get away and vanish.”

Feeling Free and Relaxed is a Choice!
