WHO ARE YOU

Make it simple, not complicated. I ask you, who are you? You don’t understand, you only don’t know. That’s a very simple answer. What is an explanation? An explanation is your understanding. That only makes it more complicated. Human beings come empty handed, go empty handed. When you are born, where do you come from? When you die, where do you go? Life is like a floating cloud which appears. Death is like a floating cloud which disappears. The floating cloud does not exist. A human being coming and going, life and death, are also like that. Our body is like the floating cloud. But there is one thing which always remains clear. It is pure and clear, not dependent on life and death. What is the one pure and clear thing? If you find it, you will have freedom from life and death. So, where do you come from? Don’t know, right? I ask you, what is your name?
