Beyond Mind

Updated on October 8, 2015

What does 'beyond mind' means?

As I am living in the state of beyond mind, I feel that it will be easier to describe how it is to you all.

Beyond mind does not mean that you have to live without a mind.

To go beyond the mind means that one has known that which is beyond mind.

Mind remains even after you have transcended it, but it is a different mind altogether, it is a mind cleansed and stilled and saturated with the beyond.

Transcendence of mind can be attempted in two ways.

If you try to transcend it through suppression, through fights, the mind will be divided and torn, it will degenerate into a schizophrenic mind.

But if you transcend it in a friendly way, through love and understanding, the mind will be integrated and settled in wisdom.

Transcending the body does not mean that you are not the body, or that your body has ceased to be, it only means that you are now not only your body, but much more than it. You are body plus something, something has been added to it.

Until yesterday, you thought you were only the body, but now you know that you are something more than the body. You remain the body; that "something plus" has not eliminated it, rather it has highly enhanced and enriched it.

Now you have also a soul: you are both body and soul.


Knowing God...


In the same way, when you come to know God, it does not mean that your soul or spirit has ceased to be, it only means that you are now body, spirit and God all together. Then mind and soul are absorbed in that which is immense, which is infinite. It is not a matter of losing something, it is gaining more and more all the way up.

So, beyond mind mean you will know that which is beyond the mind, you will know the immense, the eternal. You will continue to have a mind, a mind with heightened sensitivity and awareness.

Mind is unnatural when it is in conflict, when it is fighting with itself. Mind is unnatural when one of its fragments says do this and another says don't do this. And when the whole mind is together, integrated and one, then everything it does becomes natural, then whatever happens or does not happen is natural and spontaneous. Then, there is nothing unnatural about it. And what is natural is right.



There is an old saying prevalent among sages that when one attains to the highest wisdom, he becomes like the most ignorant person on the earth. There is some truth in this saying.

In a way, perfect wisdom looks like perfect ignorance; at least in perfection they are similar. A man of wisdom is at rest, because he has known everything, nothing remains to be known. An ignorant person is also at rest, because he does not know a thing. To be restless, it is necessary to know a little. A man of wisdom functions with full awareness. Nothing happens to him in unawareness.

That is why we say when someone attains to the highest wisdom, he becomes like a child.

Timeless Quotes from the Buddha



Somebody asks Jesus, "How is your kingdom of God? How is one who attains to God?"

Jesus says, "One who attains to God becomes like a child." But Jesus does not say that a child attains to God. If it were so, all children would attain to God. He does not say that one who attains to God becomes a child, he says he becomes like a child.

If he says that a sage becomes a child, it would mean that a child has perfect wisdom, which is not the case. If children were perfect, we need not do anything with them. No, the child is below the level of the developed mind, while the sage has gone beyond. The child will have to pass through a phase of conflict, tension and struggle; the sage has outlived all conflicts and tensions. The child potentially carries with him all the sicknesses man is heir to; the wise man has outlived such sicknesses.

      The body is the straw that Spirit, in denial of it's greatness, picks up and looks through, claiming without it, one cannot see; it is the smallest of mind's representation in form. We use the body to keep Greatness a secret, as if God can't see without that straw either.
