Q279. Master: “Your true-self was before this world was created, and it will not collapse even when the whole universe collapses.”

Q. Student: “What is the true-self?”

A. Master: “Your body.”

Student: “This also collapses when the universe collapses. What is the true-self?”

Master: “Your body.”





Don’t say that your body collapses.

If you know how it collapses, your true-self will be clear before you.
