Is the body real?
Is the body enduring?
Is it able to be enduring?

The answer is no.
The body cannot exist in a state of no change.
It is born tiny and it grows.
When it is wounded, it heals.
Movement is constant within it.
The heart pumps and blood flows.
Food is eaten, digested and excreted.

The body is a constant process of change.
It also has a beginning and an end.

The body is not able to be enduring.
Therefore, although it is experienced, it cannot be real.

  1. “On examination, even the body, etc. are seen to be unreal and false. When even the mind has ceased with the cessation of notions concerning the body and the world, the Self or the infinite consciousness alone remains.”

    ~ The Supreme Yoga; Yoga Vasistha
