The Right Use of the Mind
Fallen Leaf Lake, CA

May 31, 2017 AM


In this video Gangaji answers these common questions: Is self-inquiry a practice? Is it a practice of the mind? When it comes to the realization of truth, she says, the mature mind recognizes its limitations. She affirms we have full capacity to surrender the thinking mind to pure intelligence.

“First, there arises in our minds and in our hearts a deep desire to know the truth. Then, of course, we do what we know to do; we try to figure that out. Finally you reach a precipice where you have the intelligence and the honesty and the self-respect to tell the truth: ‘Oh I can’t get to it through my mind.’ That’s the right use of the mind. Then the truth gets you, as it’s always had you.
